A conference to promote the value of patents and patent information will take place from 10-12 November in Kirchberg, Luxembourg.
The European Commission and the European Patent Office, in close association with the Luxembourg Patent Office, are joining forces and combining the events PATINNOVA '03 and EPIDOS in order to highlight issues surrounding patents.
PATINNOVA '03 will consist of two parallel sessions and will address the interface between intellectual property and innovation. The EPIDOS event will focus on the latest developments in the retrieval of patent information, the Internet and other tools available on the market.
Key players from the patent community, including patent offices, patent information suppliers, universities and information brokers, will be present at the parallel exhibition on current trends in the world of patents and innovation.
