Navigating in an era where open innovation and IP intertwine

         Special Event in Montreal to mark World IP day


Last year, on May 17, 2018, the LES Montreal chapter supported the Symposium on licensing in Artificial Intelligence and Data Science held at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, which attracted more than 450 participants (https://www.licensingai.com/). The Symposium brought together several players in the Quebec innovation ecosystem, including SMEs, startups, investors, universities and government bodies to better understand the reality of each and thus stimulate collaboration. Thanks to its success, the Symposium on Artificial Intelligence and Data Science will be renewed for 2019.



The purpose of this second Symposium will be to further pursue certain issues of general interest. A major interest has been shown in the freedom to exploit the results of collaborative R & D projects, in particular the different IP protection strategies in the context of open innovation, access, confidentiality and the protection of data.



For an even richer content, this second Symposium will be co-organized with the International Intellectual Property Forum - Quebec (FORPIQ), on the theme "Navigating in an era where open innovation and intellectual property intertwine."


Indeed, the phenomena of globalization, data and collaborative innovation are putting constant pressure on business strategies. Intellectual property management and protection strategies must adapt accordingly.

The 10th edition of FORPIQ, the largest intellectual property event in the province of Quebec, will feature experienced intellectual property managers who will explore the best practices and current trends in an era where intellectual property flirts with open innovation and is disrupted by new technologies. We count on you to place intellectual property at the heart of our discussions for a day, and make FORPIQ a success for the 10th time!
