Check out the new permanent dispay of the wide range of diversity of patent documents from around the globe with their many colors, ribbons, gold seals. The collection leads IP Library patrons up the once bland and sterile staircase. Its quite a transformation.
The patents come from Syngenta, a global leader at providing essential inputs to growers: crop protection, seeds, seed treatments and traits, promoting better food for a better world through outstanding crop solutions.
This display is the joint concept of Syngenta and Christian Hans, Ph.D. (J.D. Class of 2017), to highlight the global spread of the Syngenta patent portfolio that approaches two thousand granted patents plus patent family members according to the Derwent World Patent Index®. It also shows the diversity and beauty of granted patents.
Many thanks to Professor Tom Hemstock for his concept of setting up the display in the stairwell.
