General Overview
About IFPF 2023

In 2021, a total of 45 domestic innovative drugs will be approved for marketing in China, which is a significant increase in number compared with previous years, and a number of heavyweight drugs will be approved frequently, which is a highly anticipated innovation breakthrough. In 2021, the Patent Law, the Implementation Measures for the Early Settlement Mechanism of Pharmaceutical Patent Disputes (Trial), the Provisions on Several Issues Concerning the Application of Law to Hearing Civil Cases of Patent Disputes Related to Registered Pharmaceuticals and the Administrative Ruling Measures for the Early Settlement Mechanism of Pharmaceutical Patent Disputes have been released and implemented one after another, and the patent linkage system expected by the industry to promote innovation and encourage generic products has been put into practice. The Implementing Rules of the Patent Law involving the compensation system for the patent term of drugs are expected to be released in the near future, which will have far-reaching impact on the intellectual property planning of China’s biopharmaceutical enterprises and the innovative development of the pharmaceutical industry, with both challenges and opportunities.

In this context, the 8th China Pharma IP Summit 2023, organized by YIP Events & Intellectual Property Frontier New Media, will be held in Shanghai from October 18-20, 2023, with the theme of “setting sail against wind and waves”. The two-day conference and one-day pre-conference seminar will focus on the early resolution mechanism of pharmaceutical patent disputes, patent term compensation, new changes in patent licensing and infringement, IPR planning under the new law, the patent situation of cutting-edge biotechnology, the latest development of patent examination and infringement litigation in Europe, U. S., Japan, South Korea and India, and the construction of compliance system and related legal issues for biopharmaceutical enterprises. The conference aims to build an academic exchange and cooperation platform for pharmaceutical IP practitioners and promote the innovation and development of China’s pharmaceutical industry.
