Intellectual Property

Ahead of World Intellectual Property Day 2024 we looked at how intellectual property (IP) can help us in reaching the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). On Thursday, 25 March, we were joined by Lisa Jorgenson, Deputy Director-General, Patents and Technology, World Intellectual Property Organization who shared more about the role that IP plays in building a more sustainable future. By fostering innovation, IP has a crucial role in achieving the SDGs and advancing global wellbeing. 

During the morning, we also heard from Chris Gow, Senior Director, EU Public Policy, Cisco and Marco Richter, Global Head, Customer Success, LexisNexis Intellectual Property Solutions.
