As part of the Digital Trade Integration DTI project, we have launched a webinar series to feed the methodology of the DTI index. The fifth webinar will address the debated issue of patent regulation and when policy measures become a trade restriction?
We will discuss how different types of patent policy measures and regulations may facilitate or hinder digital trade, and how they may impact, in practice, on digital trade measurement.
The webinar is chaired by Laurent Manderieux (Bocconi University), who will discuss on this complex matter, and will also benefit from the contributions of a distinguished speaker: Dominique Guellec, Scientific Advisor at the Observatory of Science and Technology, Paris, France, and former Responsible for science and technology policies at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and Chief Economist of the European Patent Office (EPO).

The Digital Trade Integration (DTI) project aims to increase transparency on digital trade restrictions. We are constructing a dataset of digital trade restrictions and an index on digital trade integration, which will be released in the coming months. The methodology is based on international best practices on how to regulate digital trade, leverage the cross-disciplinary exchange between the CIVICA partners.
This webinar is supported by CIVICA Research (grant agreement No 101017201).
