About Conference

Innovation is essential not only for a thriving ICTE sector but also positively impacts the overall economic climate. Intellectual property as an essential ingredient to spur innovation and entrepreneurship, aids businesses to develop ICTE solutions, create jobs and wealth and most importantly to compete successfully on a global scale.

Understanding this business imperative, MeitY and EPO is consistently working together in fostering a robust IPR-ICT ecosystem to help capitalize on the growth-enhancing effects of innovation vis-à-vis ICTE.

This year’s conference aptly titled “Creating a Robust IP Ecosystem for ICT in the 21st Century” organised by Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), a premier R&D organisation, takes a holistic view of some of the key issues facing the Indian and European ICTE industries.

As emerging technologies such as SPEAKERSIoT, Cloud, Big Data Analytics, Blockchain evolve rapidly disrupting existing businesses and create opportunities for new value chains, we take a look at how IPRs can actually serve to foster rather than hinder innovations.



Computer Related inventions are another area that has been the subject of numerous discussions with respective jurisdictions developing its own set of parameters to evaluate. As legislators set out to devise a clear and comprehensive approach to patenting of computer related inventions, we take a look at the evolving global legal perspectives. Finally, we look at the software product entrepreneurship industry and assess the role of innovation and intellectual property rights as a foundation of the software industry.
