98 advanced students and young professionals, with diverse backgrounds (from law to biology), coming from more than 35 different countries attended the program.
During this year’s edition, the first IP researchers Europe Conference (IPRE) organised by the University of Geneva jointly with WIPO and the World Trade Organization (WTO) was launched together with an ALUMNI event gathering more than 40 alummi from the WIPO-UNIGE Summer School on IP. Both events allowed in depth exchange between participants from the Summer School, scholars and alumni.
The objective of the Summer School is to provide an opportunity for advanced students or young professionals to acquire deeper knowledge of Intellectual Property (IP), and to gain an appreciation of IP as a tool for economic, social, cultural and technological development and the role WIPO plays in the global administration of IP.
The Summer School program covers all main areas of IP (namely, patent law, trademarks, designs and copyright) through a pragmatic, interactive approach. Lecturers are IP experts at WIPO, the University of Geneva, or other institutions.
