Conference highlights


The IP Week in Brussels promises a varied programme of speakers, ranging across industries and specialities. We've picked out a few particularly intriguing sessions across the four day conference.

Day one: Open innovation

Francis Gurry, director general of the World Intellectual Property Organization, will give the opening address, about open innovation as a key driver of sustainable growth.

At 11.00, a panel will consider new processes from value creations and crowdsourcing to advanced product development. Professor Dr Martin Curley of Intel Labs Europe, Laurent Gilbert of L’Oreal, Rix Groenboom from Parasoft and Andreas Zynne of Ninesigma will discuss this cutting-edge topic on a panel chaired by Frederik Van Oene of Arthur D Little.
