IFIM event: The Year of the COVID Vaccines

IPKat readers are warmly invited to attend another free (online) event organized by the Institute for Intellectual Property and Market Law (IFIM) at Stockholm University, of which I am honoured and delighted to be the Director.

Taking place on 8 February 2021, The Year of the COVID Vaccines will feature a panel discussion tackling the most significant legal and regulatory challenges facing the COVID vaccines. 

About this event

2021 is expected to be the year when the COVID-19 pandemic finally ends or – at least – the profound disruption that it has caused globally is brought under control.

An absolutely key role will be played by the types of vaccines that will be approved and administered over the next few months, the pace of vaccination, and the type and duration of the resulting immunity.

Since late 2020, regulators across the world have been reviewing marketing authorization requests filed by a variety of pharmaceutical companies.

The vaccination race has now officially begun. But what are the most relevant regulatory and legal issues that have arisen and will arise in connection with the COVID vaccines?

Join IFIM’s expert panel discussion to find out more: from regulatory aspects to liability considerations, from ethical concerns to patentability issues, IFIM’s invited experts will tackle the thorniest regulatory and legal aspects facing this unprecedented period in the history of humankind.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
