Charlottetown's bioscience incubator Emergence and Halifax’s BioNova have partnered to host an intellectual property workshop in Halifax for bio-sector innovators and entrepreneurs.

The seminar, scheduled for May 8, is presented by Canadian IP law firm Bereskin & Parr LLP Intellectual Property Law and will discuss different types of IP rights, including trademarks, copyright, trade secrets and patents.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A session and the opportunity to chat with the presenters.

"In today’s increasingly hyper-competitive and global knowledge-based economy, having an IP strategy is critical to protect a venture's value proposition, help define a company's key points of differentiation, and offer protection to a startup's competitive advantage," said Emergence Director Martin Yuill.

The talk starts at 9 a.m. at the Innovacorp Enterprise Centre in Halifax. You can register for the event here.
