Registered Future Match participants will have the opportunity to book individual meetings (25 min) with IPR experts to receive advice on specific IP or IPR query related to information and communication technologies.

European Patent Office

Patents for software? - As the patent office for Europe, the European Patent Office supports innovation, competitiveness and economic growth across Europe through our commitment to high quality and efficient services delivered under the European Patent Convention (EPC). Under the EPC, a computer program claimed "as such" is not a patentable invention Patents are not granted merely for program listings. For a patent to be granted for a computer-implemented invention, a technical problem has to be solved in a novel and non-obvious manner.


This session will explore the ICT sector’s future IP needs, looking at standards/SEP, open/closed source and other alternatives, eg secrecy. Can, or must, these different models co-exist? The move from hardware to software innovation, shorter product life-cycles, globalisation, costs, and monetisation of IP are likely to be on the agenda. How can the patent system adapt to support the ICT sector?
