EPIP stands for European Policy for Intellectual Property
It is an international, independent, interdisciplinary, non-profit association of researchers that grew out of a network financed by the European Commission from 2003 to 2005.
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.
