The Cambridge Information and Intellectual Property Meeting (CIIPM) was founded by Jane List (Extract Information) and Stuart Newbold (Patent Search & Information Management) in 2015. CIIPM hosts an annual meeting and provides training in IP matters and information search and analysis.
The CIIPM annual meeting provides an opportunity for knowledge sharing for those engaged with the commercialisation of technologies using intellectual property, and those needing information to make legal and commercial decisions. The annual meeting offers lunch, an afternoon of talks and discussions, a small exhibition, networking opportunities, morning workshops and a postgraduate student poster competition.
CIIPM also provides half-day training courses in IP Matters, IP Commercialisation, and Patent Searching for Legal and Commercial Insights. Training days take place every 6 months in March and October in Cambridge and are also available online.
