Eindhoven - Netherlands
A workshop Trade Secrets Deep Dive will be held on Friday September 7 in Eindhoven (High Tech Campus). Speakers from private practice and industry (see below) will cover all aspects of trade secrets, by many considered the most important intellectual property asset. Recent developments are the reason to organize this event:
The Defend Trade Secrets Act passed in the USA in May 2016
The EU Directive on Trade Secrets is enacted by member state on 9 June 2018
China explicitly included trade secrets in its 2018 revisions to the Anti Unfair Competition Law.
Furthermore Heads of IP Departments have expressed their wish that there should be an exchange of “best practices” on trade secret management. IPEG therefor has managed to get together excellent speakers from industry as well as legal practice to cover all aspects of trade secret protection.
