ALDE spokesperson and shadow rapporteur for EU-US Trade Relations MEP Marietje Schaake cordially invites you to:
What role for intellectual Property Rights in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership?
A panel discussion on Intellectual Property Right (IPR) provisions in the upcoming EU-US Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
Wednesday May 15th 2013
European Parliament, Jan 4Q1
Both the EU and the US have expressed their intent to include an IPR chapter in TTIP, though its final scope will be subject of negotiations. Given the vast economic potential of TTIP and the huge volume of trade in goods and services an IPR chapter seems unavoidable.
To enable an open and fact-based discussion on the role of IPR in TTIP, she would like to facilitate an open discussion between experts, stakeholders and officials to explore the different aspects of IPR in TTIP. The outcomes of the discussion will provide valuable input for the MEPs and others interested in TTIP.
