Clean Technology Partnership Meeting

The United States Patent and Trademark Office has set a date for it’s first Clean Technology Partnership Meeting.  Scheduled for April 27th, 2011 at the USPTO office in Alexandria, VA, this meeting will bring together major players in related industries to confer and help the patent office better serve the clean tech sector.

“Green technology innovations can help us protect our environment and improve our planet, and every day that an important new clean tech innovation is held back from the market represents a lost opportunity to create 21st century jobs and businesses. The feedback clean tech stakeholders provide is essential in our efforts to continuously improve the quality of our programs and services.”  said USPTO David Kappos.

The conference will include presentations on the current state of the industry and how the USPTO can expand it’s Green Technology Pilot Program.  Streamlining the process for protecting innovation in this area is essential for the government’s initiative to lead our nation to a greener and economically brighter future.
