Be innovative on IP. That’s what we’re doing at Premier Cercle™ with the IP Week 2011, a new, full-fledged event uniquely crafted to deliver high-level content through four thematic, focused days.
Researched and produced by the same organizers as the pan-European Intellectual Property Summit since 2004, and before its next edition in 2012, the IP Week is picking inspiration where the most crucial challenges meet the revolution of IP strategies today in the corporate world.
To be held from 6 to 9 December 2011 in Brussels at the heart of European decision centers, the IP Week is offering the choice to attend one to four days of conferences addressing highly sensitive topics, according to your own polarization. Here they are:
  1. Open Innovation (6 Dec.): Innovation is taking new paths, using new energies, opening its processes. Customers are asking for better products but they are also ready and willing to contribute. How does it work? Why do more and more leaders who want to stay in the run have recourse to open innovation models? How do these models look like? Share experiences, discover success stories. With Verizon, IBM Corporation, L’Oréal, Intel Labs Europe, Philips Intellectual Property & Standards, SAES Getters, NineSigma…
  2. IP in Industry (7 Dec.): Will the EU patent be a reality at the end of this year? What will be the “finishing touches” to put on it? How to protect your trade secrets? Will the exploding green technologies require a specific IP treatment? How did counterfeiting evolve over the last years and what shall be improved, from legislative and practical points of view? With Bosch, Air Liquide, Caterpillar, Audi, Borealis, Vestas, Daimler, Invensys, Novozymes…
  3. IP Strategies (8 Dec.): Are billions of dollars deals such as the Nortel patents’ auctioning on the verge to become commonplace? According to financial analysts, so-called NPEs that have reached the IPO are worth the investment: should you believe them? What can you do now with your patent exploitation strategies? Here are questions among others that will steer up the debates during this whole full day dedicated to valued IP business assets as seen from the industry, investors and public powers’ perspectives. With the European Investment Fund, Nokia, Renault, Intellectual Ventures, STMicroelectronics, Symantec, AB Tetra Pak…
  4. IP in BRICS Countries (9 Dec.): Their economies are taking off. Their R&D platforms are sought after. Not only have EU and US companies settled in these countries, but an increasing number of companies from Brazilian, Russian, Indian, Chinese and South African origin are important competitors in worldwide markets. How do they modernize their IP systems, sometimes beyond expectations? What can we learn from them? Are they using IP more strategically than you believe? Here’s everything you need to know to avoid thinking as an “old continent” company. With the Heads of important patent offices, such as USPTO, the European Patent Office and the Brazilian INPI, as well as companies such as Tata Technologies, Rhodia, GE, Techtronic Industries, Alcatel-Lucent CIS, SunPower Corp., Bharti Enterprises…
