Side Event: IP for Digital Inventions and Data Protection

March 28, 2019, 17:00 - 19:30

What’s the best way to protect your digital inventions? Is it a patent, a trade secret or copyrights? And can data be patented?

To answer these questions the Netherlands Patent Office organizes a series of meetings about intellectual property (IP) in this digital era. It can be a challenge to a couple of new digital technology and IP in a way that best suits your business. This is why the Netherlands Patent Office presents this event to connect entrepreneurs and IP-specialists.
