IP Researchers Europe Conference (IPRE)


IP Researchers Europe conference 2020
(IPRE 2020)

Geneva - 26-27 June 2020




The School of Law of the University of Geneva (UNIGE) is pleased to announce the Call for Applications to present IP scholarly research projects at the IP Researchers Europe Conference 2020 (IPRE 2020), which will take place in Geneva on 26-27 June 2020.

IPRE is an annual initiative, which was created in 2018 with the support of the World Intellectual Property Organization and the World Trade Organization, and aims at bringing together IP academics and researchers to present and discuss their papers and works-in-progress with academic colleagues, policy makers, and other stakeholders, and thus benefit  from the very privileged position that Geneva enjoys as an international forum for scholarly and policy debates about IP. For its two past editions in 2018 and 2019, IPRE has gathered a large number of scholars coming from universities and research centres in Europe, the Americas, Asia-Pacific, and Africa, who have presented and discussed a diverse and stimulating series of IP and Innovation-related research topics

We welcome submissions from established IP academics as well as from more junior IP researchers including professors, associate professors, assistant professors, lecturers, academic fellows, post-doctoral fellows, and doctoral candidates enrolled in a PhD program or equivalent post-graduate degree. Applicants should be affiliated with an academic institution or scientific research centre, preferably on a full-time basis, at the time of submission of their application and at the time of the Conference.

In general, IPRE seeks to feature primarily European-focused research, but all researchers writing on topics dealing with IP law-related issues in European law, International law, and Comparative law are welcome to apply to present.

We look forward to welcoming you (back) in Geneva for IPRE 2020!
