Kees Alblas M.Sc.
DUTCH PATENT ATTORNEY
I obtained my master’s degree in Biology in 2004 at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. More specifically, I focused on Molecular and Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Animal Physiology and Toxicology and supplemented that with a master in Science Communication & Education. I started my career at an international pharmaceutical company where I was active as an information specialist in the field of scientific literature and patent information. Thereafter, I was active in the animal feed industry for about thirteen years as a patent specialist and patent attorney. There I was involved in the intellectual property-related activities within the various innovation projects, such as counselling the process from idea to patent, analysis in the field of patentability and patent portfolios and analysis and advise in the field of freedom to operate. This means that, in addition to the patent profession, I have gained extensive knowledge and experience in international and interdisciplinary innovation environments.
