IP Event: Join us at IP Paris, 16 March


What is the role of the Chief Intellectual Property Officer (CIPO) and how can IP heads add value to their companies? This is the crux of the subject matter under discussion at the forthcoming IP Paris event on Thursday 16 March.

Christophe Saint-Marc-Etienne, Managing Director, Novagraaf Technologies (France), Philippe Vigand, Managing Director, Patents, Switzerland, and Najat Tamouza, Head of Business Development, will be attending the event, along with 120 French-speaking IP professionals from a wide variety of industries.

On the table for discussion at the event will be the ideal role for senior IP professionals within a company: how the CIPO (or equivalent) can add value, what skills and expertise they need, the challenges and opportunities they are likely to face, and how they can improve IP awareness amongst key stakeholders, such as R&D, marketing and at boardroom level.

Senior figures from Sanofi, Total, SNCF, Renault, L’Oréal and Airbus will be presenting on their experiences throughout the day’s event, while Novagraaf will be hosting a private networking lunch to enable attendees to share their own thoughts on the CIPO role and its challenges. Please get in touch if you are planning to attend IP Paris and would like to join us at the lunch.
