"We strive to create room within our clients’ businesses to turn their inventions into innovations"

Mark Jolink studied Bioprocess Engineering at Wageningen University, The Netherlands, and joined EP&C as a patent attorney in 2010. Upon completing his studies, he conducted research for his dissertation at Radboud University in the field of innovation management, focusing specifically on the food manufacturing sector.

Mark is interested in technology and science in general. He has an analytical mind, likes to get to the crux of the matter and is not easily fazed. “As a patent attorney it’s my role to work closely with the client to make optimum use of all of the technical, legal and strategic possibilities to prevent a new product from being copied. By doing this, we create room within our clients’ businesses to turn their inventions into innovations.”
