Funding for innovation and protecting intellectual property in the oil and gas industry will be the focus for two Oil & Gas Innovation Centre (OGIC) seminars being run in partnership with Heriot-Watt University.
Aimed at SMEs developing innovative technology for the oil and gas industry, OGIC’s Innovation Funding and Demystifying Intellectual Property seminars will take place on Tuesday 21 June at Heriot-Watt University’s Postgraduate Centre.
The Innovation Funding seminar will take place in the morning, running from 9am to 12:15pm, and will explore the wide range of government funding and tax relief available to support technology innovation in the oil and gas sector. Speakers at this session will include representatives from OGIC, Interface, Scottish Enterprise, Innovate UK, Ernst & Young and case studies from oil and gas supply chain companies who have received innovation funding and can share their experiences.

The session will discuss how to approach and manage the issue of intellectual property and will examine how, and at which point, a company should protect its technology.
