European Intellectual Property Teachers' Network (EIPTN)
The European Intellectual Property Teachers’ Network (EIPTN) brings together individuals from across Europe to exchange ideas on best practice and innovation in teaching and learning activities relating to intellectual property.
EIPTN is interdisciplinary in focus, reflecting intellectual property teaching in a range of disciplines including law, politics, international relations, business studies, economics, computing science, engineering and physics.
Lisbon 2013 annual workshop
The deadline has now closed for submission of proposals from university teachers of intellectual property in Europe who wish to give a talk at the seventh annual workshop of the EIPTN at the University of Lisbon, Portugal, on Monday 15 and Tuesday 16 July 2013. The event is supported by the European Patent Academy of the European Patent Office (EPO). There will be an Annual Dinner on the 15 July preceded by a drinks reception.
The programme of speakers for the workshop will be announced shortly.
It will also be possible to attend the workshop on 15-16 July without giving a talk on IP teaching issues but, in this instance, delegates will be expected to fund their own travel and accommodation costs. In addition, a small fee will be payable by non-speakers to cover the cost of attending the meeting. Further details about how to register for the event if you are not a speaker will be announced shortly.
