Dear members, the CICC is pleased to inform you that the China IPR SME Helpdesk is going to hold a free webinar on the subject: "IPR Protection for Technology Transfer to China`".
In the past European companies came to China to take advantage of low-cost manufacturing for export, however, more recently foreign companies come to enter the Chinese domestic market, establish R&D centres, employ a skilled work force, establish suppliers, and develop long-term partnerships in China.
In order to achieve this, foreign companies are often willing to ‘transfer’ their key technology and designs to Chinese subsidiaries of European firms, joint-venture (JV) partners, or Chinese manufacturing and service companies. One of the challenges facing European companies coming to China is devising creative solutions to minimize the risk to their intellectual property (IP) assets associated with such technology transfers.
Join our expert on Tuesday 20 September for a free webinar about the key issues related to IP protection in China associated with technology transfers.
This free, 45-minute webinar presentation and 30 minute Q&A session on Tuesday 13 September 2011 at 10.30am Brussels time (9.30am London, 4.30pm China) will take you through a range of simple, cost-effective measures to protect your intellectual property and your business. Get valuable insights from an experienced expert and ask questions during the webinar to learn about how to protect your technology in China.
To register to the webinar, please follow the instructions given in the official event page on the EU SME IPR Helpdesk website, here.
