Europe’s new Unified Patent Court: opportunities for Ireland at the sharp end of medtech IP
December 2, 2021 @ 12:15 pm - 1:00 pm
The patent world is about to change in a dramatic fashion with Europe’s new Unified Patent package providing – for the first time – a single patent right covering most of the EU and a single court that allows these rights to be enforced. This panel will assess the likely significance of this imminent development to the MedTech industry. It will also explore the unexpected ways that Ireland may be well poised to play a very high profile role in this regime, and the economic benefits that this may bring to MedTech in Ireland as well as to the wider Irish economy.
