Aims and objectives

The European Court of Justice has issued many important SPC decisions in the last few years: Medeva, Neurim, Actavis. The latest ones have raised more questions than have given answers.

Our speaker, one of the leading SPC experts in Europe, will discuss the referrals with you. He will put the decisions in context and will show you the consequences for national court practice and for your application practice.

Dr. Brückner will also give some hints as to pending referrals and yet unsolved questions which might be the subject of future referrals.

Who should attend?

  • Patent/IP heads/professionals from pharmaceutical/crop protection
  • Patent attorneys in private practice with a good understanding of SPCs.
