- 'Map That App!' -
Organised by Oxford Academic Health Science Network
The Oxford AHSN is hosting an introductory event for everyone interested in the development and commercialisation of healthcare-related smartphone apps.
The two-hour session takes place at OAHSN offices at The Oxford Science Park in John Eccles House, Light refreshments will be provided. The programme includes handy hints from some trailblazers including:
- * Defibrillator locator (South Central Ambulance)
- * Monster Manor blood glucose measurement game for children with Type 1 diabetes
There will be first-hand demonstrations as well as the opportunity to have your questions answered, find out what support is available and network with others who are also considering, or are already, developing apps.
To help us make sure the programme meets the needs of those attending Oxford AHSN are asking people to complete a quick survey by 24 January covering any experiences you have had around app development.
We plan to follow up this event with practical workshops.
This project is supported by NHS Innovations South East who will also present a roadmap for app development and commercialisation.

Wednesday 9th October 2013 - Marks & Clerk Seminar
Post-Grant Proceedings in the US – Lessons from Year One - 08.30 - 10.00am
The newly formed Patent Trial and Appeal Board is quickly becoming the preeminent venue to settle patent disputes. Over 400 cases have been filed to take advantage of the new post-grant Patent Office proceedings since their implementation via the America Invents Act nearly a year ago. Thorny questions are being asked, answered, and newly uncovered. This discussion will review the merits of post-grant proceedings and address roadblocks, pitfalls, and potential short-cuts that could separate the winners from losers.
