About the Exchange
What is intellectual property (IP)?
Intellectual property refers to “creations of the mind: inventions, literary and artistic works, and symbols, names, images and designs used in commerce”.
It is “divided into two categories: Industrial property, which includes inventions (patents), trademarks, industrial designs, and geographic indications of source; and Copyright, which includes literary and artistic works.” (Source: World Intellectual Property Organisation)
Intellectual property (IP) is one of the most valuable company assets. In today’s business world, protecting those assets against third party infringement can be both complex and expensive.
The same is true when it comes to protecting yourself against claims from others that you have infringed upon their patents, trademarks or other creations.
Intellectual property insurance could be a smart way of protecting these valuable assets.
- How to improve visibility on the risk exposures of your company’s IP?
- What is the underwriting and claim cycle?
Through the feedback of its speakers, the ambition of this exchange will be to provide valuable insights into this specific topic:
- Hans Strijckers, Intellectual Property Manager at Agfa-Gevaert
- Marie L’Affeter-Gebert, Directrice Souscription IP – France, Tokio Marine HCC
- Frank Ruttens, Business Unit Manager at Agfa Labs
Presentations and slides will be in English
