Event Details

Intellectual Property (IP) is of ever-growing importance in modern economies, and so are IP disputes. Increasingly, such disputes are resolved by way of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanisms. The FRAND licensing of standard-essential patents, as well as the Life Sciences sector are two areas in which mediation and arbitration are prominent, promising, but also challenging in some respects.

This conference, hosted by UCL, WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Centre, the Munich IP Dispute Resolution Forum and Zurich University’s Center for Intellectual Property and Competition Law (CIPCO), addresses the key aspects of IP ADR in the SEP/FRAND and the Life Sciences area in a high-level setting. It brings together business representatives, judges, academia, and legal practitioners, providing best practice-advice and a first hand-insight on the future of IP ADR.
