On Thursday, February 29, 2024, starting at 10:00 a.m., Prof. Dr. Judy Illes from the University of British Columbia and Prof. Dr. Dr. Tade Spranger from the Rheinische Friedrichs-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn will host a conference titled "Brain patents: A legal and societal challenge?" at the AMERON Hotel Königshof in Bonn. As part of a research project, the conference will examine the interplay between patent law and human rights, with a particular focus on neuroscientific patents. The conference will focus on the question of the extent to which patent law can be used to enable appropriate handling of social challenges relevant to human rights that may arise from neuroscientific inventions. Speakers will include Prof. Dr. Dirk Lanzerath, Prof. Dr. Zelma Kiss, Dr. Marvin Bartels and Ari Rotenberg. The event will conclude with a closing discussion at approximately 3:45 p.m.
