Dublin IP and R&D Summit 2.0
20th - 21st May 2021, The Convention Centre Dublin
About the event
After a hugely successful launch event in 2019, The Dublin IP and R&D Summit 2.0 has now grown to become a 2 day Intellectual Property and R&D Conference and Expo. For the 2nd edition running, we are partnering with Headline Sponsor Enterprise Ireland, the government body responsible for innovation in the region, with 3,500+ strong membership of IP owners including Start ups, SMEs and Corporates.
The summit is split into two parts, starting with a full day IP Commercialisation Workshop delivered by our strategic partners Coller IP on the 20th of May, followed by an interactive IP and R&D conference on the 21st of May, consisting of two streams of discussions looking at the most contemporary trends in the world of innovation. The conference will be held in the heart of Dublin at the Convention Centre, and also live streamed to a wider virtual audience.
During the main conference day, the two streams share the stage, and a common networking and exhibition space where innovation professionals will interact and exchange experiences across those two interconnected verticals in the economy of innovation.
