Intellectual Property and Competition Policy in Europe and Japan

Register for the event

Intellectual property (IP) is a cornstone for incentivising innovation initiatives. It defines a framework within which firms and individuals can produce creations of intellect.

March 14, 2017, 12:30 pm Bruegel, Rue de la Charité 33, 1210 Brussels Public | On the Record Livestreamed

In this event, Reiko Aoki, Commissioner at the Japan Fair Trade Commission will present the findings of her research and her views on the efficiency of the Japanese and international IP system. Her presentation will be followed by panel discussion on associated challenges in Europe and what is the proper way to address them.

We will try to answer the following questions:

  • How should we design IP policies to incentivise investments that promote economic growth?
  • How we can incentivise small-and-medium enterprises to invest more in R&D and grow?
  •  What is the impact of IP in high technology and very dynamic markets?
  • Can competition policy act as an instrument to induce more innovations?
  • What is the relationship between market competition and innovation?
  • Can we learn valuable lessons by comparing the Japanese IP system with the European one?

               

This event will be livestreamed on this page starting at 12.30. There is no need to register for the livestream.
