Trade secrets: are they more useful to innovators than patents?

7 September 2017 17:15-18:30, London , United Kingdom

Trade secrets are one of the most valuable assets of any business and are particularly important for the protection of research and data.  A recent EU IPO Observatory study found trade secrets are increasingly preferred by businesses over patents in Europe and, whilst they have complementary protection roles, trade secrets and patents are not substitutes for each other. 

The aim of this seminar is to discuss what trade secrets are and how they can be used by innovators to safeguard research and data. The affect of new European Trade Secrets Directive will also be discussed. 

This is a free event aimed at anyone who generates research and data, from innovator businesses to academic researchers, or anyone with a general interest in intellectual property and protection of non-physical assets.  The seminar will be followed by social drinks
