Don’t miss the hottest topics of the day…some changes to the Milan Congress Programme.


We are pleased to announce the following changes following the outcome of the Brexit vote in the UK.


New Panel Session on Brexit

Sunday 18 September will now start with a briefing on the implications for IP rights generally in the UK and the EU. Our panellists:


⦁    Cesare Galli (IT), IP Law Galli (Moderator)
⦁    Gordon Harris (UK), Gowlings
⦁    Tobias Dolde (DE), Noerr
⦁    Francesca Giovannini (FR), Osha Liang


Expanded UPC Session

Panel Session IX has been expanded and renamed 'The UPC – Brexit or business as usual?' Hear a panel debate on the Brexit implications for the UPC, before a mock trial operating under the UPC rules.


Regardless of the immediate future of the UPC, you will gain valuable insights into the national perspectives on some procedural issues explored in the context of a biosimilars dispute. The time for Q&A has been extended to provide the opportunity to address questions not only to the mock trial judges, but also experts from user associations, the EPO and private practice.
