Do you want to apply your research to complex real-world challenges? Learn how ANU researchers, in partnership with IP Australia, created an interactive patent visualisation experience to help seamlessly identify IP trends. Rather than wading through text-heavy documents and dense appendices, our speakers will present an alternative and collaborative approach that can be tailored to suit your area of interest.

Associate Professor Brett Lidbury and IP Australia created the first interactive visualisation to explore the IP landscape surrounding his work on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS). The event will showcase this collaboration and the resulting interactive report. Hear from speakers with unique perspectives, network, and learn about the many benefits of working with the Population Health Exchange and IP Australia to enhance the impact and real-world application of your work.

Food will be provided during the networking session. Please register your interest for catering purposes.
