Managing IP will be holding its 2nd Annual India IP and Innovation Forum on March 7th, 2013 at Le Meridian, New Delhi. Please see more details below:
"It is generally expected that despite economic difficulties in 2012, India is set to see a steady rate of improvement in 2013 where its business and innovation are concerned. Earlier this month a feature in the Financial Times stated that: ‘India’s prospects have now started to improve. Investors, economists and the government say economic growth will accelerate in the coming year.’ In a separate recent article the FT Reports: ‘Forecast-beating results from Infosys… prompted the biggest daily gain in the IT company’s shares in a decade and raised hopes of a recovery in confidence in Indian business.’
Whilst levels of optimism may vary it is clear that optimism is pervasive when it comes to India’s technological and economic growth in 2013. Corporations wishing to keep a step ahead will now be aggressively ensuring that their intellectual assets are properly protected and furthermore, that a well advised and insightful management of their IP portfolios will reap enhanced profit and overall economic reward for their businesses.
Managing IP’s 2nd Annual India IP and Innovation Forum takes into account these pressing needs for businesses operating in India and will address a range of pertinent topics during a day of panel discussions, case studies and thought sharing. Discussions will be delivered by leading experts from India, Europe and the USA.
