The Observatory is holding its annual plenary meeting on 30 September and 1 October.
Representatives from the Member States of the European Union, the European Parliament, the European Commission services, as well as from the private sector, civil society and international organisations are participating in this statutory stakeholder event online owing to the current situation regarding COVID‑19.
The plenary meeting provides an opportunity for the Observatory to present and discuss its ongoing work and for its stakeholders to agree on future activities and deliverables.
The state of play of the European Multidisciplinary Platform Against Criminal Threats (EMPACT) will be explained, as well as the first lessons learnt from the COVID‑19 pandemic with regards to counterfeiting and illegal streaming. The latest IP Perception study will also be presented and the topic of IPR infringement from a global point of view will be discussed.
