Stibbe’s Intellectual Property team, V.O. Patents and Trademarks, and Agoria are organising a joint seminar during which they will focus on employee inventions. The seminar takes place on 22 June 2016 at Stibbe’s offices.

Practical case studies, sample clauses, and interventions by national and international experts in this area, are combined with interactive debates with a panel composed of leading players from the Belgian industry. With this seminar, we aim to answer your questions related to employees inventions in a broad range of jurisdictions, including The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, the US, the UK, China, Turkey, etc.

Ignace Vernimme and Simone Vandewynckel focus on the need for confidentiality between employee and employer, and the measures to be taken in that respect. They also offer an international perspective on employee inventions and are joined by guest speakers from V.O. and August & Debouzy. In the second part of the seminar, they share best practices with regard to specific clauses and company policies.
