Global Britain: Great for IP, Great for Britain
This year our World IP Day event celebrated 25 years of IPAN. We heard from a fantastic line up of speakers, discussing the importance of intellectual property, and considering the future of IP in Britain beyond Brexit.
Check out some highlights from the event below, with thanks to Ideas Matter for the video and our photographer Fiona Hanson.
Welcome and Opening
IPAN Chair John Ogier then welcomed attendees to the event, which also celebrated 25 years of IPAN. Setting the tone for the evening, John quoted Albert Einstein: “We cannot solve the problems we have by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

“A game is built on a conceptual idea and it’s realised via a blend of science and art…Without retaining our IP’s Team17 would not be the company flying a British flag for our Industry on an International level as we do today.”
