Held in light of the EuroSphere Trade Fair, organised by our partners from the EU-Vietnam Business Network (EVBN) in Ho Chi Minh City from 16 to 17 of June, this Webinar titled "Webinar on European Lifestyle - How to Protect Your Products in Vietnam" will provide EU SMEs with a basic understanding of IPR protection related to European Lifestyle and Design in Vietnam. 

With many European SMEs looking to the Vietnamese market to expand their businesses, it is more crucial than ever to properly protect ones IP. Therefore we would like to welcome you to our Webinar on June 6, from 10:30 - 11:30AM (Brussels time), 3:30 - 4:30PM (Vietnam time) where EVBN will not only introduce the upcoming EuroSphere event - and why it is relevant for you - but additionally our expert Mr. Tran Manh Hung will tell you everything you need to know in order to protect your IP rights.

22 May Webinar – “Innovation in China and South-East Asia: How to Protect your Critical Know-how”

The webinar provided practical IP advice for European SMEs wishing to do business and develop technology in China and South-East Asia. Our IPR SME Helpdesk expert Mr. Philippe Deltombe gave the SMEs  a comprehensive overview on basic IP protection relating to innovation in China and South-East Asia (Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia in particular). SMEs received some tips on how to draft best strategies for IP protection especially tailored for the R&D sector in both China and South-East Asia. The IPR expert used several case-studies involving European SMEs to illustrate both challenges in IP protection  and best practice in both China and South-East Asia.



IPR Protection and Digital Thailand: the ICT Sector

In light of the EU Gateway | Business Avenues business mission to Singapore and Thailand on the Information and Communication Technology Sector of May 22 to 27 2017, Thailand's ICT Sector is growing rapidly, and the Thai government is placing heavy emphasis on its development. This provides the perfect circumstances for EU SMEs providing ICT technology and interested in expanding in South-East Asia to further explore the many possibilities Thailand might offer. However, true to our motto "Know before you Go!", we would like to emphasize the IPR risks and essentials which come along with any new foreign market.



IPR Protection in Cambodia: IPR Licensing and Franchising

In line with recent developments in the rest of the region, Cambodia has become a prime destination for European SME's to expand their businesses to. This gives all the more reason for them to protect their intellectual property rights in an often unfamiliar environment. Especially as Cambodia's IPR legislation and system are relatively young, it is important to be up to date with recent developments. Our IPR Expert Sovath Phin will expand on the IPR Landscape in Cambodia with specific emphasis on Licensing and Franchising.
