PIUG Community Hour

Watch out for the Community Hour

Each month PIUG is hosting a community engagement hour where people join in and share their experiences and network. The presentations are followed by breakout sessions. This is a good way to get to know people and to ask questions that you may be facing with patent information.

CEPIUG members are invited to join these events. You do not need to be a member of PIUG to join. The zoom meeting link will be featured on the PIUG site every month.
