Pavilion G, conference hall G4

In the face of global challenges and ongoing economic restructuring, it is crucial to employ effective solutions and technologies that facilitate adaptation to new conditions while simultaneously preserving and enhancing the country's competitiveness and technological sovereignty. The development of innovation and technology is, therefore, a foremost priority for public policy and forms the foundation for cooperation between science and business. The technological advancement of an economy is directly linked to patent activity and the level of services and infrastructure comprising the intellectual property ecosystem, which is widely recognized as a catalyst for economic growth worldwide. To enhance the intellectual property system and provide assistance to innovative high-tech companies, the government has introduced a range of measures and tools to bolster the development of the intellectual property system as a whole. How can the efficiency of instruments used to implement state policy in the field of intellectual property be improved? What are the areas of growth, prospects and development strategy in this sphere? What further steps should be taken to establish cooperation between academic and applied science and business? How can intellectual property be transformed into a highly liquid asset and its turnover be boosted? How can a culture of intellectual property management be cultivated?
