Event Details

Description: This high-level online conference will reflect on recent developments related to standard-essential patents (SEPs) in the European Union, the role of competition law to enforce ‘fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory’ (FRAND) terms related to SEPs, and the steps that need to be taken to ensure a fair and balanced SEP system for all stakeholders – especially SMEs.

The European Commission will deliver a keynote address outlining its thoughts on the topic of standard-essential patents, and offering participants a glimpse of future policy developments.

Two panels of industry experts, academia, and legal professionals will discuss some of the most debated topics within the industry and the state of the standard-essential patents ecosystem in the European Union.

Participants can expect a robust discussion and rigorous debate. A question and answer session will follow each panel, allowing the audience to interact with the speakers.
