This year’s ECTA conference looks at some of the practical topics relevant for any contemporary IP professional in the constantly evolving modern environment. You can look forward to interesting speakers and moderators doing their best to provide informative sessions and lively discussions on topics such as dispute solutions, licensing, appeal proceedings, communication, data, ethical and practical aspects of using the AI tools, most recent IP news and case law developments and much more. Being in Denmark invites us to zoom in on the areas of fashion and design, food industry challenges, IP & start-ups with dedicated conference sessions. And of course, as one cannot design the future without looking at the past, we will also look at lessons learned from the past of the IP profession in light of the practical issues for new generations.

The iconic Langelinie Pavillonen stands in the middle of central Copenhagen’s backyard, next to the Citadel (military barracks since 1626), overlooking the sea, and just some steps away from Denmark’s darling, the Little Mermaid. Built in 1956 by architect couple Eva and Niels Koppel, two of the most prominent post-war Danish architects, the current house is packed with furniture and decorations from the golden age of Danish design. Some of Denmark’s most talented architects and designers such as Poul Henningsen, Børge Mogensen and Verner Panton have worked with the building down to the smallest detail of interior decorating.
