Bio

Lisa van Dongen is a PhD candidate and lecturer at TILT and TILEC. She has obtained her LL.M cum laude in both Law and Technology and International and European Law: EU Economic and Competition Law at Tilburg University, and is now working to obtain her doctorate in law.

Her research interests lie primarily in intellectual property law, particularly judicial remedies in the enforcement of copyrights and patents in the EU. Her doctorate research ("Redesigning Remedies in Patent Enforcement: One Size Does Not Fit All") explores from a law and economics perspective how patent enforcement can contribute to policy objectives of specific industries (ICT and healthcare) and the patent system in general, while considering potentially competing interests at the intersection of patent enforcement, innovation, competition law and other entitlements.

Earlier research has also focused on the Internet of Things and privacy of the home within the Privacy Spaces project at TILT.
