Dear Colleagues and Friends,

on behalf of John Paul, Immediate Past President of LES International, and myself as well as of Dana Colarulli, LES International Executive Director, and the Organizing and Scientific committees, we would like to thank you all for attending the 2022 LES International Annual Conference (LESI 2022), which recently took place in Venice.

After two years of virtual events, LESI 2022 has been a great way to come back together in person in the beautiful setting of Venice, which is not only one of the most captivating cities in the world, but also where the first Patent Statute was issued by the Most Serene Republic of Venice in 1474, setting out the fundamental principles governing intellectual property rights.

Aim of LESI 2022 annual conference, entitled “Back to Licensing: Restarting Business and Fueling Innovation”, was to discuss the transformations occurring in major IP-intensive industries, including Automotive, Telecommunications, Healthcare, Energy and Green tech, as well as Fashion, Food and Design.

LESI 2022 offered a unique opportunity for networking and education, Almost 500 IP professionals, university and industry top managers from all over the world attended the conference to discuss the recent trends in IP and cutting-edge technological innovations for the future of industry and global business.
