16.00 - 18.30

Bird & Bird LLP, Avenue Louise 235, 1050 Brussels

Bird & Bird LLP is organising a series of seminars which will discuss the legal aspects of research and development.

Our first session will deal with the Horizon 2020 programme. We will discuss, in particular, key IP issues in collaborative research projects financed under Horizon 2020 and some of the innovation procurement tools used as part of the programme. The members of our panel, which comprises representatives of the public sector, research organisations and industry, will share their (positive and negative) experience of Horizon 2020 and tell us more about their expectations for its future.
