IAM Industry Review 2020

Most of the world’s major economies have been subject to some kind of pandemic-induced lockdown this year, but that does not mean everything has stopped. As well as adjusting to the multiple practical and strategic challenges posed by covid-19, IP professionals in a number of key industries have also had to absorb regulatory developments, potentially game-changing court decisions, new legislation, big deals and a shifting patent landscape.

IAM’s Industry Review 2020 will focus on five key business sectors: life sciences; telecoms; automotive; software and AI; and semiconductors. For each one, leading experts will explore the year’s ups, downs and pivotal moments, while dissecting what they will mean for 2021.
