Forward now brings you the same latest News & Insights from the world of IP as before, as well as in depth Forward: Features looking at the most compelling developments taking place in the scientific and entrepreneurial worlds. The best of both are sent out in our monthly email round-up. Subscribe below.

Mewburn Ellis


Mewburn Ellis Forward is a biannual publication that celebrates the best of innovation and exploration. Through its pages we hope to inform and entertain, but also to encourage discussion about the most compelling developments taking place in the scientific and entrepreneurial world. Along the way, we’ll engage with the IP challenges that international organisations face every day.
