About Infringements and Breach of Secrets

via Zoom

Adapting to the “new normal”: The 6th Women in IP International Forum goes online on 6th November 2020 starting at 2:30 pm.

We were able to set up an agenda full of learnings, discussions, and a “sweet” discovery! And, not to forget, we would like you to connect with each other using moderated Zoom break-out rooms.

Join us in this diversified experience which is free of charge for members. For non-members, the ticket price is 35 € (excl. VAT).

We are so happy to present Miriam Kiefer, managing partner of the law firm Kather Augenstein and Prof. Dr. Lea Tochtermann of University of Mannheim as key speakers.

We will learn about recent developments in view of infringement measures in a globalized world and hear about the proportionality of legal consequences according to the German Trade Secret Act in comparison with the respective provisions in the German Patent Law.

women in ip is not only promoting diversification but lives it! So register and get excited about your uplifting experience in Zoom you may not have had before. Allow us to surprise you.
