Bigger Greener Smarter – The Cities of Tomorrow and the IP Rights Behind Them


About this event

Progress in technology has significantly contributed to the improvement of urban life. Innovations in building and construction techniques such as modular construction have reduced build time and cost without compromising safety, whilst iconic skyscrapers and bridges bear testimony to feats of engineering ingenuity. In recent decades, advancements in connectivity, data collection and analytics are further enabling cities to become “smarter” and “greener”, and at the same time larger through optimisation of city operations and services.

The first segment of this webinar will cover how innovations in physical and digital infrastructure can be protected through patent registration with relevant case studies. The second segment will cover other forms of intellectual property that are associated with businesses in the infrastructure sector and ways of protecting them.
