Madderns @ Tonsley

The MDPP is pleased to announce our collaboration with Madderns Patent & Trade Mark Attorneys at Flinders University at Tonsley.

Madderns Patent Attorney Chris Wilkinson will be based at Tonsley on a fortnightly basis to provide free intellectual property educational seminars and general intellectual property drop-in and initial consultation services to Flinders University researchers, MTP clients and the wider Tonsley precinct community. 

This collaboration will allow the MDPP to further enhance its services to clients by providing specific IP resources to its clients and promote IP more broadly to the University and businesses located at Tonsley, to foster more interaction and collaboration between these groups.

The following seminars are open to all Tonsley precinct tenants, MDRI members and clients of the Medical Technologies Program. We invite you to make the most of this free resource.

PDF copies of ALL seminars will be made available on the Madderns website here.
