Volvo Group is looking for two Master’s students to write their thesis and help improve gender diversity in innovation. Volvo Group signed the Diversity Pledge in January of 2023 and by doing so they are committed to improving diversity in innovation, focusing on increasing the numbers of female innovators, which will be measured by the representation of women inventors in patent applications.
C-IP2’s 2023 Annual Conference explores IP issues arising from major Supreme Court decisions, new licensing approaches, national security issues, and tech innovation (Metaverse, crypto, NFTs, and generative AI). Impacted doctrines include first sale, SEP and FRAND, TRIPS waiver, functional claiming, so-called patent thickets, and more. Join leading academics, practitioners, industry heads, and judges to work through the most important new developments in IP, tech, and the arts. This year’s conference features a special celebration honoring the life and work of the indomitable Judge Pauline Newman from the Federal Circuit.
LESS IS MORE WHEN IT COMES TO UNDERSTANDING IP RIGHTS
When it comes to understanding intellectual property rights at least one organization has come to believe that less is more.
A fresh approach to learning why IP rights exist and who they benefit was introduced today by the Center for Intellectual Property Understanding, a non-profit. The CIPU-curated portal makes it easy for everybody to attain basic IP knowledge.
Viewers of all ages and backgrounds can begin to grasp the major IP concepts of sharing and protection through IPBasics.org. Site content features examples and explanations of the four types of intellectual property rights, including NIKE, LEGOS, iPhone, and the Beyonce catalog and products.

Bowman Heiden, Jorge L. Contreras, Steve Faraji, Sonja London, and Matthias Zigann will be speaking at the upcoming seminar by IPR University Center “SEPs – what should the EU do?”
How should the EU facilitate the licensing of SEPs? This seminar addresses the challenges that SEP licensing currently faces in the EU and beyond and the means by which the EU could seek to resolve the issues through its policy actions. It evaluates the current initiatives put forward and considers how the European Commission, national courts and the CJEU can facilitate the licensing of SEPs in a way that secures innovators incentives to innovate and effective access to SEPs by implementers.
