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

- Prof. Claudio Dordi (Bocconi University, USAID Trade Facilitation Program Director in Vietnam)
- Ysolde Gendreau (Profesor, University of Montreal, Canada)
- Antony Taubman (Director, IP Division, WTO)

Moderator: Prof. Xavier Seuba (Catalonian Open University)

Schedule: The Global Digital Encounter will be held from 15-16hrs (Madrid, UTC +2 time zone) using the online platform Microsoft Teams.

Structure: The Global Digital Encounters will be organized where 50% of the available time will correspond to the presentation of the topic by one or several distinguished speakers, and the other 50% to questions from the audience and answers.

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

For those participants who want to get readings connected to the Encounter topic, we are pleased to recommend below several useful links that could be read at any time after the Encounter, or even before it.

These links are non-exhaustive, in the sense that Speakers and the Moderator cover a broader scope of topics connected to "From West to East: Trade, IP and Investment", but they offer insights that may bring further reflections for the future
