Intro

It is with great pleasure that the EUIPO Academy, as a partner organisation of the European Joint Doctorate in Intellectual Property EIPIN-Innovation Society, invites you to participate in the online conference Fostering Innovation in Europe - Intellectual Property Policies and Law taking place on Thursday, 25 June organised in collaboration with the consortium of EIPIN Universities.

EIPIN-Innovation Society is a comprehensive project, financed by the European Commission, at the forefront of multidisciplinary research, examining the role of intellectual property as a complex adaptive system in innovation. It provides political leaders and stakeholders with reliable conclusions and recommendations in the form of doctoral IP research on how to deal with the adaptive complexities of innovation cycles.

The event is aimed at providing an opportunity to the 14 EIPIN-IS early stage researchers (ESRs) to present their research project to representatives from different IP-intensive industries and IP organisations. It also serves to enhance the visibility of the various research projects developed under EIPIN-IS, and hence the dissemination of cutting-edge research on intellectual property.

The conference contains four parts and will be held in English:

Panel 1: Intellectual Property as a Complex Adaptive System
Panel 2: Governance of Production and Technologies
Panel 3: Adjudication, Justice and Enforcement
Panel 4: Allocation of Rights, Actors and Institutions
