ECIPE Webinar: How can stronger IP in EU Free Trade Agreements boost productivity and economic growth in Europe?

January 11 2022
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Christophe Kiener, Fredrik Erixon, Nathalie Moll, Luisa Santos and Nikos Lavranos
Time: 10:30

You are invited to join a virtual event seeking to discuss the economic and societal value of intellectual property rights (IPRs) for Europe.

How do IPRs in EU FTAs support EU strategic resilience and global competitiveness in a post-COVID world? What are the concrete benefits of robust IPRs for EU member states? How important is IP for innovation, in particular for the green and digital societal transformations? Why should IPRs be given a more prominent role in EU policy-making, especially when it comes to EU FTAs? These are some of the questions that our guest speakers will address during the panel discussion.

Following the presentation of an upcoming report, the speakers will explore how stronger IPR provisions in EU Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) contribute to EU and EU Member State economic and societal ambitions.
