Innovation is often the key to business success in China for EU SMEs providing them with a comparative advantage over competitors.
When entering China's market many SMEs transfer their innovative technology, may it be through licensing, establishing joint ventures or through R&D collaborations. Recent IP laws and regulations adopted by the Chinese Government facilitate bringing innovative technology to China. Nevertheless, transferring technology to China involves IP risks which SMEs should be aware of to avoid losing their competitive advantage due to loss of IP to competitors.
Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China and China IPR SME Helpdesk jointly organise a webinar on Technology Transfer and IP Contracts in China on October 29th!
During this webinar, China IPR SME Helpdesk IP Business Advisor Mr. Matias Zubimendi will provide an overview of the latest technology transfer conditions as well as discuss the role of various contracts in protecting IP when transferring technology to China. Mr. Zubimendi will also provide some expert tips to successfully protect your IP when bringing your inventions to China. The webinar will end with a Q&A session where attendees can raise their questions and interact with the presenter.

About the China IPR SME Helpdesk
The China IPR SME Helpdesk supports European Union (EU) Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to both protect and enforce their Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in or relating to Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan through the provision of free information and services. These take the form of jargon-free, first-line, confidential advice on intellectual property and related issues, plus training, materials and online resources.
The China IPR SME Helpdesk project is funded by the European Union and builds on the achievements of a pilot project carried out in 2008-10, the subsequent Phase II in 2010-2013 and Phase III in 2014. Phase IV ran from January 2015 to June 2018. As of September 2018 Phase V commenced expanding China IPR SME Helpdesk's services also to the SMEs from COSME countries.
