Union-IP Dinner Meeting

Union-IP Dinner Meeting

Tuesday, 14th June 2022 Our speaker will be Adrian Howes.

The British group of UNION is pleased to announce that our next dinner meeting on Tuesday, 14th June will feature Adrian Howes, Head of IP and Standards, IP Policy, at Nokia. With Nokia’s long history in telecoms IP, and its close involvement in the SEP / FRAND framework, Adrian will be addressing us on the topic: 

“The Geopolitics of SEPs” 

This is not just a topic for telecoms specialists – the global battle over communication standards and jurisdiction, and the increasing spread of the SEP / FRAND framework to other areas of technology, including the internet of things, and the metaverse is making this once backwater of IP law a hot topic at the highest levels of government. What is happening in the SEP world at the moment, and whether it even gets as far as digital platforms, life sciences and vaccine related matters, are questions that Adrian will be addressing. Everyone who wants to get the backstory should come along and hear what Adrian has to share. 

Venue: This event will be held at le Café du Marche, Grenier Room (22 Charterhouse Square, Barbican, London EC1M 6DX). Places will be limited to 50 attendees only, so ensure to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment! 

Time: Drinks from 6 for 6.30pm dinner, address by the speaker at about 8pm and a general question and answer/discussion session to finish by no later than 9.30pm.
