Life sciences & health care

For all life science and health care organisations, the effective protection, management and enforcement of IP is essential to achieve long term success in a competitive marketplace.

Australia’s life sciences and health care sector has a strong reputation on the global stage, underpinned by world-class medical research programs, leading educational and research institutions, and a storied history of developing Nobel Prize-winning innovations and high tech solutions that have been adopted the world over.

Innovators in this space have access to leading talent, resources, favourable government incentives and the ability to obtain strong intellectual property protection. This means that competition is fierce and the race to innovate is constant.

Having a strategy for intellectual property in place from day one is essential for all life sciences and health care organisations to establish ownership and maximise return on this substantial investment.
