A word from our Editor-in-Chief
"Seminar on Digital Development and Intellectual Property", WIPO, New Building, Switzerland, Geneva, 21-23 of November 2016
I want to give an overview of a high-level international scientific event which follows on the series of events unfolded internationally during 2016 in the field of Intellectual Property Protection. These are scientific events that carry on the creation and consolidation of the intellectual property culture and the new technologies (technologies of the future) at an institutional level in the context of harnessing the relations that have been cultivated throughout the years with WIPO, EPO EUIPO, OSIM, ORDA, and other such international institutions. With a view to improving specialists’ knowledge in the field of intellectual property protection and transfer of technology, but also to bringing new international practices and experiences into the local practice, “Lucian Blaga” University from Sibiu was represented by Professor Mihail Aurel Țîțu, at an International Seminar of major importance which took place this year at WIPO in Geneva, Switzerland.
The nominal invitation sent from WIPO namely by Ambassador Ojeda Hector Antonio Casanueva, permanent Ambassador of the Permanent Mission of Chile to Switzerland and to WIPO, was an opportunity to participate to this high-level international scientific seminar where the participating countries exchanged examples of good practices in the field of Intellectual Property Protection (IPP). The representatives of the participating countries came from the academic and research environment, private organisations, multinational companies, banking and finances and last, but not least, the public administration and the political environment. The presence at this International Seminar of Ms Sylvie Forbin - WIPO’s assistant general manager - granted an extra added-value to this scientific event where debates were focused on great topical issues in the field of Intellectual Capital.
