Ms. Letizia Tomada, ESR 11, presented her research on “The Impact of the European Unitary Patent System on Innovation of Start-ups” at the “IP Researchers Europe Conference” organized by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the University of Geneva (UNIGE), on the 29th June 2018 in Geneva.

The participation at the IPRE Conference was a great opportunity for ESR 11 to discuss her work-in-progress and preliminary findings with IP experts in a truly international and interdisciplinary environment. The presentation spurred the interest of the audience on the relevance of the research problem and research questions within the framework of a cutting-edge topic.

ESR 11 has received enriching feedback and questions from attendees coming from different jurisdictions. Moreover, her research will benefit from the constructive dialogue and interaction with both early-stage and senior researchers.
