IPR Spring meeting 2011 - Thursday 26 May

The foundation of our way of life is under pressure from the outside and from within. Consequently Europe must seek other ways of creating wealth.

More than ever the role of innovation is strongly emphasised as a key element to attaining European competitiveness and growth. IPR features prominently as a core component in building the framework conditions necessary to meet these ambitions.

At the same time the European IPR system and infrastructure is faced with a number of strategic and operational challenges. The need to reform and build on the existing IPR regime is rightly recognised as a priority for immediate action. This entails a critical review of how we operate. Both from outside the EU and from within we see evidence that there are other – and better – ways of managing our IPR-system.

The Question is what to do?
