The island of Anglesey just off the North Wales mainland may not have a very large population or land area but its Menai Science Park (M-SParc) is almost at the centre of the World Intellectual Property Organization's map. If you hover your cursor over the British Isles, you will find the following mention:
World Intellectual Property Organization ("WIPO") is the United Nations's specialist agency for intellectual property. Formed originally from a merger of the secretariats of the Paris and Berne Conventions, the WIPO is now the guardian of most of the world international agreements on intellectual property offering a wide range of services to its 192 member states and their nationals.The
On the 26 April of every year, it organizes a worldwide festival of events to celebrate the anniversary of the coming into force of its founding convention. As the WIPO notes, Anglesey's contribution to this worldwide event will be a lunchtime workshop on copyright and other intellectual property law will take place at M-SParc between 13:00 and 14:00 on 26 April 2019. The speakers will be Steve Livingston of IP Tax Solutions, Huw Watkins of BIC Innovation and me.
M-SParc opened its doors on 1 March 2018 and has already attracted some great businesses. You can find more information about it in this film.
