In the era of Industry 4.0 or the Fourth Industrial Revolution, protection and interpretation of IPR requires new skill sets and knowledge. Big data and technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Machine learning, 3D printing and so on are posing new questions about ownership, novelty, inventiveness and originality of IP generated. Issues related to licensing and enforcement are also emerging.

The Conference provides a vital platform to share the best national and international practices in IPR policies and enforcement, evaluate each country’s action plans on IPR enforcement, develop new tools and create stronger partnerships to advance the common purpose of combatting IP crimes. It covers issues such as artificial intelligence and IPR for software and devices, manufacturing and human resources, IP licensing and so on.
