"Prof. Ann, Dr. Kroher and Mr. von Meibom will assess the morning's presentations - sometime critically - from a more practical standpoint. They are the perfect specialists for these questions. For this reason I am sure that a lively discussion will develop as to whether the "one-size-fits-all approach" has proved its worth in the IP area," opined Dr. Matthias Kober, Program Director for Law at the Centre for the Continuing Education and Knowledge Development in the University of Augsburg. "The European Patent Office and the pharmaceutical company MSD SHARP & DOHME GMBH have supported this event and by doing so have emphasized the importance of this topic in the practical world."
