The Bloomsbury Hotel, London, 21st June 2018
Following the resounding success of Life Sciences IP Review’s global series of Life Sciences Patent Network events, which took place in Boston, Singapore and London, comes WIPR's inaugural Technology Patent Network EUROPE. We are delighted to announce the 2018 conference schedule continues on 21st June at London's Bloomsbury Hotel.
WELCOME TO TECHNOLOGY PATENT NETWORK EUROPE
The changing global patent landscape, combined with unceasing advances in technological innovation, means that there have rarely been more exciting times to be responsible for protecting and exploiting tech patents. The explosion in innovation has resulted in a tech patent sector which now provokes many more questions than answers.
Additionally, new frontiers are opening up that could change the patent landscape significantly. The advance of artificial intelligence will be accompanied by new kinds of patent, but also threatens the patent system as we know it. The world’s legal systems weren’t designed to cope with apportioning intellectual property protection to non-human innovation.
Brought to you by World Intellectual Property Review, Technology Patent Network EUROPE is the latest conference in the 2018 Patent Network event series to bring together an unrivalled audience of Patent and Licensing Heads from established and fledgling Tech companies, along with Private Practice Attorneys, and service providers.
The conference, taking place in London on 21st June 2018, provides delegates with an invaluable opportunity to gain insight into the sector issues of critical current importance; listen to best-in-class case studies; keep abreast of the likely forward impact of key judgements and political jolts; and network with global patent peers.
WHY ATTEND TECH PATENT NETWORK EUROPE?
Technology Patent Network EUROPE follows on from the hugely successful LSPN North America and Europe 2016 conferences, which were attended by upwards of one hundred in-house counsel. The conferences are specifically designed to provide a 50:50 ratio of in-house counsel to private practice attorneys, enabling a balanced meeting of leading figures from across the whole tech attorney spectrum.
The London conference will take a broad global view of the patent protection landscape and then delve deeper into the topics of specific current interest. Extended round table discussion groups enable a couple of hours to be spent in small groups, sharing views on a range of topics of your choosing. For fledgling tech companies, the conference will feature an open clinic to enable in-house counsel to quiz specialist private patent attorneys from around the globe on their own specific pressing patent issues.
Starting with a concise round-up of recent notable trials from key patent jurisdictions, the conference continues with a series of presentations and keynote panel discussions, Q&A sessions, extended round table discussion groups and a networking lunch — and culminates in a closing drinks reception. Attending will enable you to address your concerns; find solutions to your challenges; stay abreast of new precedent and harness new ways to protect and exploit your innovations.
MORE THAN 50% OF ATTENDEES ARE IN-HOUSE COUNSEL
