About The Symposium:

With Patents becoming a core part of existing economic ecosystem, particularly for Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Chemical, and Drug Industries, creation and exploitation of Patent Portfolio has become an industry in itself; especially with the cost of development and protection of the portfolio being enormous. It is therefore crucial to understand important Patent issues, not only for IP teams but even more importantly for R&D Scientists so as to minimize efforts in Patent development and maximize commercial gains. It is also important for Corporate and concerned stakeholders to understand nitty-gritties of Patent portfolio creation, promotion, protection, management, and commercialization, without which there would always remain an open door for a serious blow either from an infringement perspective or from a patent invalidation perspective or the portfolio would remain under commercialized. This is precisely why the number of major patent litigations are growing between competitors and contemporaries, besides the growing threat from international exploiters. Exclusivity rights granted through patents can only be utilized if there is comprehensive knowledge of various patent related issues, more so when the National Patent Laws & Practices relating to prosecution practices, drafting practices, examination practices, enforcement practices and commercialization practices differ substantially across geographies. Furthermore, standards for protection and enforcement as applied by different National judiciaries often vary widely and therefore in global business scenario, besides understanding of Patent Laws and Practices prevalent in India, we also need to understand practices in economically and financially important geographies such as in United States, Europe, Japan and Brazil. It is in this direction that the three days International Symposium is being organized to impart comprehensive knowledge to understand nitty-gritties of Patent Regime.

The speakers are selected such that R&D Scientists, In-House Counsels, Patent Attorneys, and IP Practitioners can get to know real insights and nitty-gritties followed in the United States, Europe, Japan, India and Brazil in Patent Domain.
