As part of the Open Minds speaker series at Science Gallery, brought to you by McCann FitzGerald, and hosted by Pat Kenny, Professor Boyle's first talk in Ireland will be followed by a discussion on the future of copyright, IP, and patent with other industry experts, and address how the changing world of rights and regulations is about adapting, innovating and flourishing.
