Bringing robotics into the real world – Griffith Hack’s Peer Watterson to speak on managing IP for robot start-ups

20 September 2017

Advances in robotics are rapidly bringing science fiction into the real world and generating a wealth of intellectual property that needs to be protected.

Brisbane-based Griffith Hack Special Counsel Peer Watterson will be explaining how to manage IP at the Queensland University of Technology’s QUT bluebox Robotics Accelerator on September 27.

The accelerator, Australia’s first robotics dedicated accelerator, is a three-month development program aimed at helping robotic start-ups enter the marketplace.

“Robots are starting to become part of our everyday life, and many entrepreneurs are starting to realise that there are business opportunities in this field,” Peer says.

“Launching a new business idea can be daunting, but this is the time to make sure that you know how use intellectual property to maximize your protection and profit as your business grows.”
