IAM virtual event

Share this page:

IAM’s Auto IP Connect event brings together the world’s leading OEMs, high tech innovators, industry disruptors and tier suppliers to share best practice and leading IP strategies for the future of automobility.

We participated in a session around Next-Generation IP strategy: building for an autonomous and electric future where we looked at developing an effective IP strategy that accommodates the rapidly changing patent landscape of automotive mobility.

The session covered:

  • The innovation landscape and where to expect growth, from 5G to electrification.
  • Understanding key policy changes and how they will impact IP strategy.
  • Successfully aligning business and IP.
  • More bang for your buck: maximising patent portfolios while mitigating risk.
