EAIP Conference

This year the Council of British Chambers of Commerce in Europe (COBCOE) is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

To mark this remarkable achievement, the British Business Group in Macedonia (BBGM) is organizing the 1st International Conference on Economic Aspects of Intellectual Property – EAIP 2013.

The Conference will be organized in cooperation with the Center for Intellectual Property at the Faculty of Law, “Iustinianus Primus”, in Skopje at the beginning of October 2013. The speakers and guests from UK and Macedonia will be leading experts in this field as well as company Executives  who rely on the protection of their IP for successfulcommerce.

In a world facing rapid economic change, material assets are losing their value through rapid commoditisation, whereas Intellectual Property is a constant source of value and growth potential.

When the search for investment capital is more challenging than ever, it is necessary for companies to evaluate and protect their intellectual property and leverage it to stimulate value and create an appealing growth story for investors and shareholders.

This conference is the best place for Macedonian companies to learn about the basics of Intellectual property, the value of patents, trademarks, industrial design, copyright and other IP Rights.  It will focus on how to protect them and the mechanisms for valuing, transferring , selling and commercializing IP.

The conference is supported by the British Embassy in Macedonia.
