Abstract:
Trans-boundary air pollution is a crucial factor affecting air pollution, and its contribution may vary over the time and differ under various weather/climatic conditions. However, very few studies have comprehensively analyzed the spatio-temporal variations of trans-boundary air pollution. This talk will use Hong Kong and Singapore as examples to discuss the significant and special trans-boundary air pollution characteristics in high-density cities under various atmospheric conditions.

ORKTS would like to bring to your attention the captioned event. Our speaker, Mr. Stephen Hou will be sharing with us his insights in protecting your research and the different strategies in applying for a patent in the US.  


  About the Speaker:
Mr. Stephen Hou

Mr. Stephen M. HOU is a Doctor of Law candidate at the New York University School of Law, where he is a Dean’s Award Scholar and an InSITE Fellow, advising start-up companies on entrepreneurship and venture capital. He has practiced patent prosecution for an intellectual property boutique firm in Boston and for a premier general practice law firm in San Francisco. Prior to his career in law, he has been involved in three award-winning start-up companies in Boston and Tokyo, serving as co-founder, chief engineer and software engineer. Stephen graduated Phi Beta Kappa with four degrees in physics and electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he was a microsystems engineer and instructor, earning the Goodwin Medal for Excellence in Teaching and the President Paul E. Gray Award for Excellence in Research.
 

Abstract:

Patent protection for inventions is a valuable component of business strategy for start-ups, established companies, and everyone in between. This talk will discuss strategies for navigating the U.S. patent application and prosecution processes to obtain a patent with the broadest possible protection that will also withstand legal challenges later. These strategies include properly determining inventorship and ownership early on, amending claims, conducting interviews with patent examiners, filing continuing applications, and requesting ex parte reexaminations. We will look at how notable Supreme Court and Federal Circuit cases have shaped patent law and what they mean for inventors.

Ahead of Germany, France and Japan – Why Hong Kong is a top place for flourishing biotech innovations (3 Nov 2015, Tue)

The Office of Research and Knowledge Transfer Services (ORKTS) invites you to a seminar about the innovation of the Biotech industry in Hong Kong. Prof. KWAN Hoi Shan from School of Life Sciences will share his view on why Hong Kong, already ranked ahead of Germany, France, Japan and South Korea, is among the top places for flourishing biotech innovations. This view is based on the 2015 Scientific American Worldview Report, which analyzes and interprets data on the innovation potential in biotechnology for 54 countries. Based on seven scorecard categories created from 27 components, this analysis combines information from biotechnology inputs and outputs through government protection and policies and far beyond. This seminar will discuss how biotech scientists can take advantage of Hong Kong’s superiority.

How Innovative Enterprises get the Attention of Investors - How to Evaluate An Investment Opportunity from an Intellectual Property Perspective

“Individual investor, private equity, banker and Venture Capital Company generally take a similar approach in picking the best innovation from many innovative enterprises.  As an innovator, what would make you stand out and get the attention of investors?   What are the factors that would affect the value of a company that is based on an innovation?  What are the relevant questions when due diligence investigation is performed on intellectual property of an investment opportunity?  Generally, investors are more likely to invest in a company that is unique, and if the company is based on technology, whether the proprietary technology is protected by intellectual property and the strength of the protection.  Investors are less likely to invest in a company that has a high risk of infringement on competitor’s intellectual property.  Ownership and rights to the intellectual property, assignments and any encumbrances on the title and license obligations are also important in a due diligence investigation.”


All CUHK Staff and Students are Welcome!
