IPR2 Closing Event Europe: A retrospective of 4 years of EU-China co-operation on IP protection, Brussels, 13 September 2011
Following the presentation of results to stakeholders in China at the IPR2 Closing Event in Beijing, IPR2 will present a retrospective of 4 years of EU-China co-operation on IP protection to stakeholders in Europe, as the Project completes its four-year implementation in September 2011.
The Ministry of Commerce and the European Commission, together with the European Patent Office (EPO) and the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM) and leading IP and industry experts, will present the key areas of intervention, evaluate the results and impact and engage in a panel discussion on lessons learnt and areas for possible further co-operation. The event will involve the handover of expert materials and information tools developed by the IPR2 Project to the European and Chinese authorities.
The occasion will provide a unique opportunity to engage European stakeholders of EU-China co-operation on IP protection in reflecting on the results and considering how they can be brought further forward.
