Fourth EU-China IP Academic Forum in the context of EUCIPAN


Fourth EU-China IP Academic Forum in the context of EUCIPAN

Designed and set up by IP Key China, the EU-China IP Academic Network (EUCIPAN) supports exchanges between EU and Chinese academia with a view to ensuring sustainable collaboration. It provides a steering group, research opportunities and an online platform (eucipan.org). A forum took place in Shanghai last year, followed on 21-22 October 2019 by a steering group meeting and the Fourth EU-China IP Academic Forum, both hosted by the University of Alicante. The forum included main sessions on:

  • IP issues in the context of globalisation
  • IP and artificial intelligence.

Roberto Escarre, Director at the University of Alicante, opened the EUCIPAN steering group meeting with a presentation on the EUCIPAN. Other contributors included Professor Ma Zhongfa from Fudan University, who praised the Shanghai forum as a great opportunity for strengthening cooperation between the EU and China.

The steering group meeting was followed by task force discussions on, inter alia:

  • the EUCIPAN portal and network development
  • a research programme
  • the Fifth EU-China IP Academic Forum.

A summary of the conclusions of the task force discussions will be available shortly on eucipan.org and will be shared with interested parties by the EUCIPAN team.

Please see the agenda of Academic Forum and the agenda of steering group meeting for specific information on the events. For general information on EUCIPAN, contact Benoit MISONNE at benoit.misonne@euipo.europa.eu.
