Focus on China

In Insights, Uncategorized

18 November, 2011

The fact that China is growing in importance is well known. To Awapatent, this growth is visible in our day-to-day work, both from the questions we get about IP in China from our European clients, and from the growing demand for our services as a European firm for Chinese clients. Naturally, we make it a priority to increase our focus on China.

As part of our efforts to get to know this immense country better, we have just spent a week in Beijing, conducting meetings, giving lectures and learning more about this different and challenging place. One of the highlights of this trip was a lecture on ”IP in Europe”, given by Niklas Mattsson at one of the institutes of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Needless to say, we have also had a lot of exciting food, met with a lot of interesting people, and travelled in a few of the city’s 70 000 taxis!
