Strix has sponsored A Level Student Amy Lowe from the Isle of Man to have her prize-winning product design registered as part of our support for raising the profile of Engineering and Design amongst the island's young people.
Amy’s design for her innovative A-Maze pill dispenser won her the "Best of the Best" prize in this year’s Isle of Man Government ACE (Awareness of Careers in Engineering) awards.
Strix has agreed to fund the European Design Registration of her design and our patent attorneys, Dehns, have agreed to support this by waiving their fees for the application. This assistance is worth nearly £2,000 and will secure protection for Amy’s design for up to 25 years and allow her to commercialise it, should she wish to do so.
‘We at Strix are delighted to be able to support Amy in registering this innovative and functional design. We believe that fostering the development of Engineering and Design skills is vital for the island’s long term development and that schemes like this are a great way to encourage our young people to engage with the possibilities that a career in engineering can offer.’
