Intellectual Property & Innovation Committee

Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names and images used in commerce.

IP is protected in law by, for example, patents, copyright and trademarks, which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create. By striking the right balance between the interests of innovators and the wider public interest, the IP system aims to foster an environment in which creativity and innovation can flourish.

The IP Committee and Innovation Committee organizes regularly conferences on regulations for member corporations.

HR Talks Working group

The European American Chamber of Commerce (EACC) brings together talents and knowledge to meet the challenges faced by economic players operating in an international context.

To do this, the EACC offers companies several working groups allowing them to exchange good practices between peers, to nourish their strategic thinking and to strengthen links between members.

“EACC HR Talks” takes place by videoconference with Human Resource Directors of companies with an international presence. This digital format makes it possible to cross borders and facilitate dialogue between structures of different sizes and sectors from different areas of France.


  • The discussion group is coordinated by the EACC which identifies the experts, sends out the invitations, prepares the agenda and ensures the coherence of the group.

  • Group of 8-10 Human Resource Directors per session, on the basis of a recurring participation (6 to 8 weeks) in order to create a dynamic of exchange. 


‘’Ce groupe me permet d’échanger avec mes pairs sur différentes problématiques RH auxquelles je suis confrontée au quotidien. Chacun peut ainsi bénéficier de l’expérience des autres et s’en inspirer. L’éclairage d’un expert lors des discussions enrichit également le débat.’’
