#NewAseBioAlly | "AseBio is a gateway, a meeting point with and for companies, associations, foundations, universities, technology and research centers that carry out activities in the field of biotechnology"
Meet UNGRIA Patentes y Marcas, our new ally. We talked with Sergio Escorza Treviño, director del Departamento de Patentes.
AseBio. What does your company's work bring to the table and what is its strength?
Sergio Escorza. UNGRIA is a Spanish company specialized in Industrial Property and related activities, founded in 1891. We are a team of more than 160 professionals: European Patent Attorneys, European Design and Trademark Attorneys, Spanish Industrial Property Agents, Lawyers, Scientists, and Engineers with experience in all technical fields of Intellectual Property. We have a wide network of our own offices in Spain, the United States (unique in the sector) and Latin America to offer global advice.
We advise large and small companies, individual inventors, public organizations, technology transfer offices, research support units and R&D&I centers regarding the filing, prosecution and defense of their Industrial Property rights both at a national and international level.
At UNGRIA, we continue to focus on qualifications of our team and rigor in our work as our spearhead. We have a patent department made up of almost twenty engineers, graduates, and PhDs specialized in the different disciplines of science and technology, three quarters of whom are Patent Attorneys. This places us among the Spanish industrial property offices with the largest number of specialists who have this professional competence.
AseBio. What is AseBio for you?
Sergio Escorza. AseBio is a gateway, a meeting point with and for companies, associations, foundations, universities, technology and research centers that carry out activities in the field of biotechnology in Spain and, therefore, share interests.
AseBio. When did you first hear about AseBio?
Sergio Escorza. When we made the strategic decision to bet on the biotech sector and started working in this line, we immediately came across AseBio, the link among the biotechnological ecosystem.
AseBio. What is the biggest challenge facing the biotech sector (or your company)?
Sergio Escorza. We aspire to be recognized as experts in the biotech sector and, for this reason, in addition to being part of the main groups such as AseBio, we have reinforced our technical team with profiles among which there are four new chemists, a biotechnologist, an environmental scientist and two biologists.
As experts in the protection of intangibles, UNGRIA is at the service of AseBio’s associates and interest groups and is committed to working to defend and enhance research, development and innovation in biotechnology.
