U.S. patent chief headlines upcoming virtual discussion

Inventors of all stripes know the vital importance of protecting the rights to their intellectual property. But for inexperienced inventors, obtaining patents can be an enormous challenge.

“Expanding American Innovation,” a virtual discussion on the intersection of innovation and intellectual property, will give inventors, innovators and others interested in learning more about IP the opportunity to hear from and interact with the top executive at the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Presented by the Cincinnati Innovation District and the University of Cincinnati Office of Innovation, “Expanding American Innovation” will explore efforts to increase patents and innovation among underrepresented communities. Discussion will include a focus on striking the appropriate balance between innovation and access to pandemic-related health inventions.

“Expanding American Innovation” takes place between 11 a.m. and noon Wednesday, Jan. 13. The event is free to attend, but registration is required.
