The Indian Patent Academy is a specially adapted one-day version of the full patent academy and will provide a global overview of patent protection in the generic pharmaceutical industry. The course will be delivered by industry experts Duncan Bucknell from Global IP Strategies and Leighton Howard CEO of GenericsWeb. This is an exciting opportunity for those in the generic pharmaceutical industry to improve their understanding and effectiveness in a rapidly evolving industry.

GenericsWeb Patent Academies are highly respected and renowned events, receiving feedback including:

"This course will make you love patent issues"

"Great information on all fronts regarding the generic patent environment"

"Very good, very recommendable"

The Generic Pharmaceutical Patent Academy is a direct response to requests from generic drug development personnel to better understand and respond to patents. At no time in the past has the influence of patents been more significant on the industry, creating confusion and uncertainty with frightening regularity.

The Generic Pharmaceutical Patent Academy recognises the fundamental need for personnel performing different functions to understand how pharmaceutical patenting affects the generic development process and to integrate it into the development process by devising appropriate strategies.

This one day course will be delivered in a workshop style with frequent opportunities for discussion and exercises. Content will be enhanced by reference to numerous real-life examples. The course outline includes i) Understanding Patent Information, ii) Interpreting in the Context of Industry and Legislation, and iii) Strategic Development of Generic Pharmaceuticals.
