Study 'The Future of Intellectual Property'
Friday 8 December 2017 - IP Summit 2017
The End of Plagiarism: Changing customer needs   The current IP trend study by both the Dennemeyer Group and the trend research institute 2b AHEAD brings to the point what you already guessed: By 2030 the exploitation of IPR will no longer be what it is today. Customers buy solutions instead of products, they use 3-D printers to create individualized items by themselves and employees have become job nomads in fluid companies. We invite you to a futurist session to discuss how the new technologies such as the IoT can influence the conception of your products and services as well as the clients relationship.   Dr. Sevim Süzeroglu-Melchoirs, Dennemeyer Consulting GmbH leads the session on Dec. 8 from 9 to 11:30 am.
