Global Series sessions, part of an on-going dialogue, address topics of global significance at a senior level of discussion. Working closely with government representatives, adjudicators, corporate leaders, litigation leaders, academics, and others in the global community, the Series responds, in real time, to emerging challenges. The on-going Series includes participants from Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, the Republic of Korea, the United States, the People’s Republic of China, Canada, Brazil, and other countries.

The Global Series has begun its planning for 2020. Two components are envisioned. The first session to be held on April 29 in Washington DC at the Army Navy Club, will explore the key global challenges being presented to the world’s innovation, IP and trade systems. The second and expanded two-day session is sited in Tokyo, Japan at The New Otani Hotel on October 30-31. With the insights from the first session, the October component will engage the challenges in more detail responding to rapidly emerging national and international focal points in these sectors.

Detailed information on the April DC Session is now available here.
