FIDE (Legal and Business Research Foundation) and TIPSA (Transatlantic Intellectual Property Academy) join 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?

In these meetings, TIPSA and Fide want to find some answers, through the debate and reflection of the IP community, led by the best international experts.

The Global Digital Encounters form 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 Director: Prof. Laurent Manderieux, Adjunct Professor of Intellectual Property Law and International and European Law, Member of the Directorate Board, Bocconi University.
