The Bolar exemption has itself been applied differently in Europe, with broad application in Germany and narrow application in countries such as the UK and the Netherlands.

Join us for the next instalment in our life science dispute series where we unpack these various exemptions in Germany, the Netherlands, Poland and the UK and address what is known about the activities that they cover and what is not.
