A WILAB (Wireless Innovation Lab) event.
The COVID-19 pandemic has emerged at a time when multilateralism is under unprecedented stresses and tensions. At the same time, the pandemic has transformed the ways in which we live and work – accelerating pre-existing trends towards digitalization, and opening up further opportunities for the use of innovation and creativity to drive growth.
In this address, Daren Tang, Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), will reflect on the ways in which WIPO and the global intellectual property ecosystem can respond to these developments and the challenges they bring.
The address will be followed by an interactive discussion with Mr Tang, hosted by Professor Andrew Christie, Melbourne Law School, and Ms Janelle Borham, President of the Institute of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys of Australia. Attendees will be able to pose questions for discussion.
This webinar is being delivered live at 6.00pm AEDT Wednesday 20 October. For other time zones, please see details below:
