Pre-Conference Workshop

12:00 - 13:00 Registration and Networking Lunch

13:00 - 15:00 How to deal with Trade Secrets

As we know, trade secret protection differs significantly from patent protection, not least in terms of what you’re protecting and how long you’re protected for. So, what protection strategies should you be focusing on, who within the business should be involved and how exactly can you use these trade secrets to create competitive advantage?

In this exclusive session with Dr Stephan Wolke, CEO of ThyssenKrupp Intellectual Property AG, will guide you through the necessity of why protecting your trade secrets, from a legal perspective, is critical to the long-term success of your business. Join us, and walk away with a clear view on:
• Classification system for the trade secrets by classes and position within the value chain
• Overview of contractual actions, IT actions, physical actions and organisational actions for trade secret protection
• Organisational options for installing responsibility for trade secrets within companies
