With Innovation being the focus of the Business Innovation Centre in Staffordshire it is no surprise that two of its employees – have embraced innovation by investing in totally electric vehicles, in fact they have both invested in a Nissan Leaf. 

It works quite well for the company as there are Electric Charging Points outside their office on the Staffordshire Technology Park in Stafford but unfortunately not as yet outside their Longton office at the Sutherland Institute.

There are a number of patents linked to the development and the running of the Nissan Leaf and a number of Trade Marks protecting the name and the logo and associated accessories. A fascinating world and if you would like to find out more about Patents and Trade Marks and other forms of Intellectual Property come and join the BIC at their next workshop on 6 July in Cannock – What IP do you Own? run by the Intellectual Property Office.
