IPBC India in person

IPBC India

India is a fascinating IP market that is growing at an unprecedented pace. Robust debate over pharmaceuticals, software and standards makes for a vibrant IP policy environment, but should not overshadow the strong protection available to high-tech R&D and manufacturing companies. Complexities abound, and rights holders need strategic knowledge to maximise their success in the jurisdiction.

It is against this background that IAM is pleased to be hosting the first IPBC India at the Taj Lands End Hotel, Mumbai on February 28 2017.

To register, please click here.

This dedicated one-day event will take IPBC’s core themes of IP value creation and strategic IP management and discuss them from the viewpoint of both international and domestic companies operating in India.

The focus of the event is to bring together an audience of 150-200 senior attendees from Indian corporates, their counterparts at major multinationals, plus key players from government and the broader IP market for a packed day of high-level discussion, networking and business opportunities.

To ensure the maximum benefit for corporate attendees, the overall event delegate profile will be strictly controlled, with restrictions on the number of service provider attendees to ensure that, as with all IPBCs, the event remains completely industry led.

We look forward to welcoming you to Mumbai!

IPBC Southeast Asia in person

IPBC Southeast Asia

Southeast Asia is a diverse economic powerhouse that poses numerous challenges for rights holders looking to protect, manage and develop their IP assets across the region.

As both local and international companies increase their IP creation, R&D and manufacturing activities in the region, the disparities in levels of protection between jurisdictions are a significant concern.

The region is also home to world-class research and innovation hubs, but the need for strategic IP management is crucial if future technological breakthroughs and business ideas are to generate economic and corporate success.
It is against this background that IAM is pleased to be hosting the first IPBC Southeast Asia at the Grand Hyatt, Singapore on March 3 2017.

This dedicated one-day event will take IPBC’s core themes of IP value creation and corporate IP best practice and discuss these from the viewpoint of both international and domestic companies operating in the region.

The event will be tailored to an audience of 150-200 senior executives from leading regional corporates, research institutions and the IP business community, plus their international counterparts. Alongside them will be a select group of governmental, regulatory and judicial figures from around the region.

To ensure the maximum benefit for attendees, the overall event delegate profile will be strictly controlled, with restrictions on the number of service provider attendees to ensure that, as with all IPBCs, the event remains completely industry-led and acts as a superb educational, networking and business opportunity.

We look forward to welcoming you to Singapore!

The “Uberization” of Healthcare: clear skies ahead for eHealth? in person


New technologies have found their way to the health care sector. Electronic patient records, medical apps and health related applications are making their entry. As part of this evolution, new players enter the market, and the roles of medical care providers and patients change, data are being shared between various stakeholders and new risks and opportunities arise.

Event information

Stibbe's Technology, Media and Telecoms (TMT) team is pleased to invite you to its lunch debate on this interesting topic. This session will deal with the developments mentioned above and bring answers to various questions, such as: What are the opportunities for eHealth, and how realistic and concrete are they? What are the boundaries and legal constraints of eHealth?

The debate will take place at Stibbe’s offices in Brussels on Monday, 13 March 2017.

We have three guest speakers for this roundtable session: Dr. Erik Ranschaert (University Hospitals Leuven), who will share his views about the “Uberization” of eHealth, based on his PhD Dissertation, Mr. Frank Ponsaert from the ministry of Social Affairs and Health, who will tackle this subject matter from a policy perspective, and Dr. Ivan Elegeert (head of cardiology at the AZ Groeninge Kortrijk), who will talk about the Cardio @ home project which he is implementing in the AZ Groeninge. (Please see the bottom of this e-mail for more information about them.)

We hope this debate will open an interesting discussion with all attendees afterwards.

Our Stibbe specialists on IT, privacy and data protection will be available to share and discuss their insights into this subject matter with you. The debate will be opened and moderated by Erik Valgaeren, head of the TMT practice.

Registration is free of charge. We would be grateful if you could confirm your attendance by 6 March at the latest.

If you want to register for this event, please send an email to: stibbe.brusselsseminars@Stibbe.com.

As the number of available seats for this event are limited, please note that we may not be able to accommodate all registrations. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

We look forward to seeing you then.

About our guest speakers

Dr. Erik Ranschaert was working at the radiology dept. of the University Hospitals of Leuven, with abdominal and urogenital imaging being his main field of interest. Since the start of the year (from Jan. 2017), he heads the radiology dept. at the Heilig Hartziekenhuis in Mol, Belgium. Dr. Ranschaert obtained his PhD in 2016 at the University Hospital of Antwerp with the dissertation “The impact of information technology on radiology services”. In it, he discusses the ongoing revolution in medicine, which he asserts as mainly caused by the rapid evolution of the Internet and the concomitant exponential progress in the digitization of medical information. The main goal of his research in this dissertation was to demonstrate that: (i) both the digitization of medical imaging and the continuous progress in information and communication technology have had and still have a significant impact on the way through which radiological services are and can be delivered, (ii) the possibility to exchange medical information and radiological images digitally has played a crucial role in the establishment of teleradiology, (iii) teleradiology is here to stay, although chances are high that the format and types of applications of teleradiology will change, as both the underlying technology and the practice of medicine are currently subject to crucial changes, and that (iv) major new trends such as the increasing popularity of mobile devices and social media, the progress of e-Health as part of the Internet of Things, and growing patient empowerment will have a significant impact on the way radiological services are delivered in the future.

Mr. Frank Ponsaert is advisor on e-Health and Big Data at the cabinet of Ms Maggie De Block, the Minister of Social Affairs and Public Health. He is chairman of the inter-federal steering committee on e-Health, chairman of the federal steering committee on e-Health, member of the Board of Directors of the e-Health platform, and represents the Minister in each of these positions. Frank has a Master’s Degree in mathematical sciences and started his career at Control Data and Philips. He held different management positions at Origin (now Atos), DMR, Fujitsu Holland, and Ardatis (now Cegeka). In 2007, he joined the health sector, first as interim manager at LCM, then as manager of the National Intermutualism College (NIC) to then becoming advisor to Minister De Block in 2014.

Dr Ivan Elegeert is head of the Cardiology department and of the Cardiac Revalidation department at the AZ Groeninge in Kortrijk. He specialised in internal medicine and cardiology at the University Hospital in Leuven. Dr Elegeert teaches Cardiology at the Institute for nursing in Kortrijk. He regularly attends and moderates congresses on cardiovascular issues and has contributed to several scientific publications. He is member of the Belgian Society of Cardiology, secretary of the Belgian group on Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation and Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology. He participated in previous projects on Telemonitoring in Cardiology and recently started a pilot project ‘Cardio@Home’ in cooperation with the cabinet of Minister of Health De Block , whereby patients with heart failure are monitored remotely after an admission.
