9 months 3 hours


Intellectual Property Rights are legally enforceable rights over the use of inventions or other creative works such as patents, copy right and trademarks which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create. IP (Intellectual Property), as intangible assets, are key to the competitiveness of your business in the global economy. IP is a primary method for securing a return-on-investment in innovation, creativity and reputation and is particularly relevant to SMEs as they internationalize their businesses to areas such as Mainland China.




Two Novelties for Directors Of Belgian International Associations

11 months 1 week


The Belgian Law governing international non-profit associations of 27th of June 1921 is set to disappear and the new ‘Belgian Code on Companies and Associations’ has just entered into force. Two novelties are of particular interest to directors of international associations having the form of an international non-profit association governed by Belgian law. A first novelty is the possibility to delegate daily management matters formally to a daily management body. A second novelty is the increased liability for members of the board. As a result, directors may have to pay more attention to their colleagues in the board than before.
