ABOUT EPIP

EPIP (European Policy for Intellectual Property) is the leading European platform for the analysis and discussion of intellectual property systems and intangible assets. It is an international, independent, interdisciplinary, non-profit association of researchers that grew out of a network financed by the European Commission in 2003-05;

EPIP’s objectives are:

→ to encourage research on economic, legal, social, political and historical aspects of intellectual property rights at national, European and international levels;

→ to contribute ideas, concepts and discussions that will promote innovation, productivity and growth in Europe and beyond;

→ to inform and to encourage policy-oriented discussion involving political and administrative bodies and stakeholders in Europe;

→ and to cooperate with other associations with similar objectives.

The EPIP Annual conferences bring together scholars, including doctoral students, working on economics, management and law with a focus on intellectual property, along with policy-makers and stakeholders. They foster an inter-disciplinary exchange of knowledge. Sessions include contributed papers, keynote presentations and policy-focussed panel discussions. Contributions come from and invitations are sent to across the world, with an increasing Asian and BRIC’s presence.
