On April 12, 2022, the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce, the EU-China Business Association and the China IP SME Helpdesk are organizing a webinar that will focus on IP Practices in R&D Activities, which will take place from 10h00 AM to 11h15 AM CEST.
Developing an Intellectual Property (IP) strategy is a critical consideration for European SMEs expanding in China, which also applies to research and development (R&D) activities. As outcome of R&D, new intellectual property is being created so a company’s IPRs need to be clearly defined. European SMEs may run into problems navigating the ins and outs of ownership of IP.
The China IP SME Helpdesk will provide an online training on the best practices to avoid disputes over IP during joint R&D activities.
