8th Pan-European LES YMC Conference

, , ,

24 September 2021

From 2.00 to 5.00 p.m. (CET)

For additional information and to register

It is with great pleasure that LESI’s Young Members Congress (YMC) and LES Italy welcome you virtually in Italy to the 8th Pan-European LES YMC Conference.

The well-known pandemic still in place – for which we postponed the event last year – forces us to carry the conference out in virtual mode, but it will not be any less interesting.

The event is free to register on this website for all participants (including both members and non-members of LES) and will be held on Friday, 24 September 2021, from 14.00 to 17.00 CET.

Since we could not all be present in person in Milan, we have created an event in order to convey to participants the peculiarities of the Italian culture and “Made in Italy”.  In fact, the topics will be based around the “3 Fs” acronym of Furniture, Fashion, and Food, to illustrate Italian excellence recognized all over the world and the strategies for the protection of their IP rights.

The format is innovative: first of all, the main speakers will not be lawyers or IP consultants, but will be the same representatives of Italian enterprises, both small and large, belonging to the different sectors of reference.  In this way, we hope to give a direct voice to the protagonists of the enterprises and their experiences in the protection and management of IP rights in world markets.

The program is divided into three parts, one for each main topic (furniture, fashion, and food) with a main speaker who will make a speech of 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for Q&A.  Then, there will be breakout sessions moderated by some members of LESI or LES Italy, where participants – divided into rooms – will have the opportunity to interact with each other, to network, and to discuss the topics of the main speeches.  The novelty of the format is that these networking sessions will also be attended by external guests – representatives of other Italian enterprises in the sector, who will explain their experiences and interact with the participants.

At the end of the afternoon, in order to close the event in a dynamic and funny way, there will be a game for all participants crafted by a young Italian software engineer.

If you want to learn more about the Italian excellence in the 3 Fs and if you want to have the opportunity to interact directly with their protagonists and with international participants all over the world, please join us!

We look forward to hosting you at the 8th Pan-European LES YMC Conference.

Mattia Dalla Costa, President of LES Italy
