Industry Patent Quality Charter

On June 14, 2024 a

Conference on Patent Quality

organized by the Charter for Patent Quality in Industry will take place.

Declining patent quality is in the meantime not only a concern of Industry but also patent attorneys, academia, judges and even the staff of the EPO share these concerns. Different speakers from academia, industry, patent office, and court will therefore discuss the importance of valid and enforceable patents.

There will be short presentations followed by a Panel Discussion and a Q&A session with questions from the participants. Participation is possible on-line and on-site.

Preliminary speakers

  • Prof. Dr. Christoph Ann, TU Munich
  • Dr. Joerg Thomaier, Bayer
  • Dr. Filip de Corte, Syngenta

  • Beat Weibel, Siemens
