    About the Speakers

    The CEPIUG has won three leading experts in the field of patent searching and IP protection in the field of Blockchain Technology as speakers for the workshop: Matteo Baroni, Nigel Clarke and Alberto Ciaramella ! 


    Matteo Baroni
    Matteo is a patent and trademark attorney registered before the European Patent Office (EPO), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), and the Italian Patent and Trademark Office (UIBM).
    He has been involved in the IP field since 2000, mainly handling patent matters in the electronics, software, and telecommunications sectors. He has gained significant experience in dealing with the blockchain technology and essential patents for several technological standards (e.g.: UMTS, LTE, x-DSL, Wi-Fi, DVB), both in the drafting and prosecution phases. He also provides technical support in opposition and litigation issues and spoke in many meetings on patent matters.

    Nigel Clarke
    Recently retired from the EPO Nigel is an independent consultant. Until recently he managed patent knowledge research projects focussing on future and emerging technologies, such as Blockchain, graphene, quantum, and cancer immunotherapy. Research results have been published in leading peer reviewed journals and on the EPO’s “Patent insight reports” web pages. He joined the EPO as patent examiner in electron and ion optics and subsequently became IT manager. For many years he was department head responsible for Espacenet and the European Patent Register. Leaving academia, Nigel started work in the UK Scientific Civil Service, mainly on focused energy beams for microanalysis. He published numerous scientific papers. Nigel studied physical chemistry at Exeter University and holds a PhD in neutron science. He carried out post-doctoral research on carbon fibres at Surrey University. He holds memberships of the Royal Society of Chemistry, Institute of Physics and is a Chartered Scientist, UK Science Council. He has external academic positions at a number of UK universities. Nigel is a contributor to ISO TC279 Innovation Management and is an editorial board member for “World Patent Information”, and is a reviewer for “Nature Biotechnology” and IEEE “Transactions on Engineering Management” .

    Alberto Ciaramella
    Alberto is an electronic engineer with a specialization in computer science, is the CEO of Intellisemantic, which he founded in 2005.
    Before founding IntelliSemantic, he was a researcher and research manager in voice and language technologies at CSELT, which was the research center of Telecom Italia.
    He has participated in different European projects, has published more than 40 articles in international journals and conferences and is the author or co-author of 4 patents.
    IntelliSemantic develops solutions that use language processing, semantics, linked data and artificial intelligence technologies, more typically for Scientific, Technical and Medical documents, including patents.
    In recent years, IntelliSemantic's activities have extended to blockchain technologies. IntelliSemantic is now one of the partners of the European project ONTOCHAIN, with cascade funding, whose goal is to develop an innovative system of technologies and applications that integrate blockchain and semantics.
