Intellectual Property and Digital Transition Conference – 11 February

The Portuguese IP office (INPI) is organising a virtual high-level conference on Intellectual Property and Digital Transition, on 11 February 2021.

Under the theme of ‘The Intellectual Property metamorphosis in the Age of Digital Transition – Remember the past, Act in the Present, and Reflect on the challenges of the Future’, the conference will focus on two central themes: digital transition and intellectual property. The event has been organised within the framework of activities of Portugal’s presidency of the Council of the European Union.

The EUIPO’s Executive Director, Christian Archambeau, will give an opening speech at the conference.

On 1 January 2021, Portugal was entrusted with the rotating presidency of the Council of the EU. With the official motto of ‘Time to deliver: a fair, green and digital recovery’, the presidency believes that it is essential to reflect on the importance of intellectual property in the European context.

All information related to the conference can be found on the dedicated website of the event.

Compliments of the European Union Intellectual Property Office.
