IAM’s Annual Pharma & Biotech IP Event

Mr. E. Kerim Yardimci (Managing Partner, at Deris) moderated the session concerning ''Managing Political and Legislative Change'' with the speakers Francesco Macchetta (Bracco Imaging S.p.A.) and Elise Melon (UCB).
A number of political and legislative changes confront patent owners in the life sciences space and thus, understanding them is crucial to protecting valuable intangible assets. The aim of the session was to review how changes in the political and legislative landscape are impacting life sciences. Therefore, ‘the spectre of compulsory licensing’, ‘harmonisation: UPC or its alternatives’ and ‘final considerations on the brink of Brexit’ were the main topics of the session.
