el Viernes, 25 de Septiembre 2020, 16:30 - 17:30
Fide Foundation and TIPSA (Transatlantic Intellectual Property Academy) have joined forces to organize a serial of digital encounters to be scheduled along the year 2020 around the topic “The role of IP in a new post-crisis world”. All online encounters are opened to any interested person and speakers have been selected among the most relevant IP scholars and professionals all over the world.

The situation we live in has highlighted and made unstoppable something that we already knew: we are heading towards a world in which intangible assets are going to be key in a society oriented towards artificial intelligence and the data economy, where Industry 4.0, Biotechnology and Biocomputing will be the keywords for the future.

So, the question is served: if intangible assets are increasingly important, how is the Intellectual Property system duly equipped to respond to the needs of this new world?

Let us address this fundamental issue with courage !!!

Participation is free but places are limited, therefore early registration is encouraged.

The Global Digital Encounters form an integral part of the solidarity projects run by both organizations to support the international, European and national plans to overcome the sanitary and financial consequences of the COVID-19.

Academic Directors:

Prof. Laurent MANDERIEUX (Bocconi University)
Manuel DESANTES (University of Alicante)


We now join forces to bring about the 5th Global Digital Encounter, which will focus on the following topic:


September 25th


The post-COVID Crisis environment is marked by an exponential use of Artificial Intelligence and a further digitalization of society, permitting mankind to overcome major limitations linked to the pandemic, and proposing new options for many activities necessary to the business, consumers, and the entire society. As a consequence, the relation between patents and software protection gets further re-visited choice. Speakers from three continents will provide a broad picture of the increased, but also, changing the role of patents in software and AI in a profoundly transformed post-crisis environment..
