Europol’s Intellectual Property Crime Conference will take place on the 19th and 20th of September in Antwerp, Belgium. This is an opportunity to discuss current developments and trends in IP crime with international experts in law enforcement, business and science.
During the two conference days, you will be able to gain comprehensive insights into the various different aspects of IP crime through interesting specialist lectures. Representatives from Belgium, China, Denmark and Spain, for example, will do presentations covering IP crime prosecutions in their countries and provide insights into the workings of police and customs investigators.
Representatives of international organisations such as Europol, OLAF (the European Anti-Fraud Office) and EUIPO (the European Union Intellectual Property Office) will also be on hand to provide information on international strategies and cooperations in the fight against IP crime, while the Chinese company Alibaba will be presenting special measures to protect intellectual property in online trading. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to take part in the development of new initiatives related to IP protection in the fields of technology, legislation and law enforcement.
Apart from law enforcement officials, the English-language conference is also open for representatives from the private sector. Further information about the conference as well as the possibility to register can be found on the event website.
