All forms of IP are relevant, whether patents, copyrights, trademarks, plant breeding rights, geographical indications, design rights, trade secrets or others.

Program with notable academics and practitioners invited as keynote speakers and panelists in roundtables and themed sessions. The conference includes a PhD workshop on 8 September, free of charge to PhD students.
