In patent law, current research focuses on the future European Unitary Patent System, on standard essential patents and patent pools in telecommunication and consumer electronics as well as on specific issues of pharmaceutical patents, indirect patent infringement and other questions of general patent law. Furthermore, extensive research projects have covered unfair competition law as well as fundamental questions regarding general principles of intellectual and industrial property rights.
