Major European patent and trade mark attorney firm, Haseltine Lake, supported the recent United Kingdom Science Park Association (UKSPA) October Conference, an annual event for professionals involved in all aspects of science park innovation and progression, which took place between 6 and 7 October 2016, at the Roslin Institute and Pentlands Science Park, just south of Edinburgh.

The conference saw over 150 delegates gather to explore the four key areas prioritised by the Scottish Government: Innovation, Investment, Inclusivity and Internationalisation. With workshops from key figures such as David Hardman, Chairman of UKSPA and John MacKenzie, CEO of the Roslin Institute, the Conference gave professionals the chance to discuss an array of topics, including business investment and entrepreneurship, international connectivity and the Scottish perspective on science parks and innovation.

Haseltine Lake sponsored the evening reception’s Whiskey Tasting Experience, held at the Macdonald Holyrood Hotel in Edinburgh. Partner at the firm, Magnus Johnston, attended on behalf of Haseltine Lake. He comments on the evening’s activities, “We were delighted to support this year’s UKSPA Annual Conference as a sign of our continued support for UKSPA across the whole of the UK. We were particularly pleased to be part of this event in Scotland, which recognises its burgeoning animal health and life science sectors. The conference is always a must-attend for us, as we find it a highly valuable way to discuss the challenges and opportunities currently facing science parks.”
