November 12, 2019 What´s New? – Robotics and IP with TK Tech

What´s New?  – Robotics and IP with TK Tech. 

Time: 17.00– 19 .00

Presentation and Networking

 

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with Epicenter Amsterdam and TeekensKarstens advocaten notarissen welcome you to an afternoon presentation and networking drinks about the protection of creative and innovative ideas and products of great importance.

If the protection of innovative products and services is assured companies can be innovative. This protection is, among others, ensured by intellectual property rights (“IP”), such as copyright law and patent law.

Autonomous intelligent systems (“AIS”) and robotics are increasingly involved in the creative and innovative processes of companies. The use of AIS in the context of innovative processess within companies raises questions about the applicable legal framework. For instance who would own an invention discovered and developped by a robot?.Is this the robot or the human who controls the robot? Who would be liable if a robot infringes a copyright of a third party?

In our next session, we will address these issues. To do so, we will discuss IP in their specific relation to robotics and AIS. We will provide guidance on how to protect your IP in the best way possible, while using robotics and AIS.

November 25, 2019 – TechBridge

Launch: TechBridge Sweden/The Netherlands

Women in Tech

 

Save the Date: 25th of November

 

Time: 15.30-19.00

 

Location: Epicenter Amsterdam

 

Number of seat available: 100-150

 

TechBridge Sweden/The Netherlands is a concept initiated by the Swedish Embassy in The Netherlands, Swedish Chamber of Commerce, Epicenter Amsterdam (and StartupDelta?) with the ambition to increase the knowledge about Sweden and The Netherlands as two world-leading nations when it comes to technological innovation. The objective is to build strategic partnerships between the parties in a dynamic forum where the message about our innovative countries is conveyed through shared experiences and best practices. The content created will be spread in a serie of podcasts highlighting interesting and dynamic tech related subjects from both Sweden and the Netherlands. The target group are prominent Dutch and Swedish investors, decision makers, academia and media.

 

This first edition of TechBridge Sweden/The Netherlands is highlighting the potentials of “Women in Tech” and will be a pre-event to the European Women Technology Conference in Amsterdam taking place on November 26-27th, 2019. This edition of TechBridge has been designed to inspire, celebrate and connect Women in Tech. We will deep dive into what the challenges are for Women in Tech, what we can learn from each other, how we can encourage more girls to choose technology studies and how we change the patterns of investors.

 

Sweden and the Netherlands have traditionally very strong trade relations and in recent years the tech industry has impacted the bilateral bond even more and the traffic is high. Both Amsterdam and Stockholm are widely described as the tech start-up capitals and rank high in most internationally recognized lists of competitiveness and innovation capacity.

  

The second edition of TechBridge will cover another challenging theme in tech and will take place in Stockholm next year.
