As we all get settled back into our routines following Chinese New Year, it’s a good time to update you on activities IP Key is planning over the course of 2015.  First, we are pleased to announce that our 2015 Yearly Action Plan (YAP), was endorsed by both the Chinese and European management boards just before Chinese New Year in February.  It was drafted in close consultation with a total of 15 Chinese agencies and ministries under the coordination of MOFCOM. A full list can be found here. Planning is already underway for the first half of the year including activities with governmental agencies and other IP Key partners. The full list of upcoming activities can be found on the IP Key website.

The YAP is ambitious, and plans to cover a wide range of subjects.  It also celebrates the 10 year anniversary of the EU-China IP dialogue mechanism, starting with a flagship event in Brussels in the summer. Make sure to visit our website for updates on our activities.

IP Key would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and feedback. We look forward to ongoing cooperation and exchange.
