Gilbert’s LLP is proud to launch the COVID-19 Innovation Initiative (“CII”) to contribute to the global effort to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe that the global innovation community can help deliver humanitarian and economic respite from the virus. It is our goal to deploy our experience and expertise to facilitate the rapid deployment of such innovation.
The CII currently includes two projects. The first is a model royalty-free patent and technology license to help Canadian companies discuss sharing their technology in response to the pandemic. The second is the CII fund, which makes $100,000 CAD in in-kind investments available to companies and innovations that help suppress the spread of the virus, deliver or support an effective treatment or cure for the virus, or assist in restoring the proper functioning of the economy.

We will update this page with all the latest on the CII and our efforts in response to COVID-19.
