Webinar – IP in the age of digital engineering: How to succeed in Europe as engineering shifts to the digital domain

Host and speakers: Alexander Ford, Senior Associate and James Plunkett, Senior Associate and Olivia Crawford, Partner

R&D in the engineering sector continues to shift to the digital domain, with innovation arising from the simulation, control and optimisation of systems as often as it does from component and system design. This trend will continue as digital technologies advance, and IP strategies should be changing in step with this.

Join our experts on Wednesday 19 June 2024 at 13:30-14:30 GMT | 14:30-15:30 BST | 15:30-16:30 CEST where we will be exploring those trends and how engineering businesses can adapt their strategies for Europe. We focus on the boundary for patent eligibility, and how to navigate the EPO’s practice on computer-implemented inventions, particularly for innovation in the engineering/industrial sector.

In the webinar, our team of experts will cover:

  • Recent control, testing and simulation filing trends in engineering sectors;
  • European case law developments in protection of computer implemented inventions; and
  • Improving your prospects for protection of software-based invention.
