USPTO to Host Clean Technology Partnership Meeting
Washington – The U.S. Commerce Department’s United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will host its second Clean Technology Partnership Meeting on Tuesday, June 12, 2012, to bring clean technology stakeholders together to share ideas, experiences and insights and provide a forum for discussion on how the USPTO can improve and expand on its clean technology programs.
Clean technology includes products and services that improve operational performance, productivity or efficiency while reducing costs, inputs, energy consumption, waste or pollution. Alternative energy sources, water and gas purification and soil remediation, as well as other technologies centered on increasing energy efficiency and non-toxic production incorporate clean technology.
Leading industry experts will provide an overview of the clean technology landscape by addressing the importance of regional accelerators and giving an update on clean tech patents.
This meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, June 12, 2012, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, in the South Auditorium, Madison Building, Concourse Level, located at 600 Dulany Street, in Alexandria, Virginia.
