Webinar: Protecting intellectual property in supply chains, new approaches and initiatives (Feb 11, 2016)
Join the European Commission’s Jean Bergevin, Stéphanie Martin and CREATe.org’s Craig Moss as they discuss:
- A new European Commission initiative to incorporate IP protection into supply chain management
- How to integrate IP protection into existing supply chain management
- How to identify and assess risks
- Ways companies can incorporate best practices into working with third parties
Fragmented, far-flung supply chains put valuable intellectual property (IP) at risk: counterfeits parts and counterfeits can enter legitimate supply chains, trade secrets can be compromised, and designs can be copied.
For companies today, these infringements can pose financial and reputational risks may constitute a threat to public health and consumers' safety.
