Upcoming events

for the year 2020

On 18 February you are invited to join the webinar “Brexit: Impacts for IP, Trade and Commercialisation Agreements” – a joint meeting of LES Benelux, LES France and LES Britain & Ireland.

This online session is the first of what we hope will be a series of three, looking at the impact of the final Brexit Treaty, the “Trade And Cooperation Agreement between The European Union … and … the United Kingdom” from an Intellectual Property, Information Technology, and Data perspective.

All presentations of earlier meetings can be found under Past Events.

The Licensing Course will be postponed until 2021.
