WIPO-Unige Summer School 2019
June 24 – July 5, 2019 (2 weeks)
The University of Geneva, together with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), will organize a two-weeks WIPO-University of Geneva Summer School on Intellectual Property (June 24 to July 5). The Summer School takes place during the first week (June 24 to June 28) at the WIPO Headquarters, and during the second week (July 1 to July 5) in the premises of the University of Geneva Law School. The Summer School is open to approximately 90 senior students (graduate and postgraduate students) and young professionals from any field of study or discipline (from law to economics).
The Summer School offers an invaluable education program in intellectual property (IP). Selected applicants will be notified three weeks after the registration deadline that shall be made online on the WIPO website (see below 5) except for applicants from the University of Geneva who can apply for a free participation.
Summer School Objective:
The objective of the Summer School is to provide an opportunity for advanced students or young professionals to acquire deeper knowledge of 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 intellectual property experts at WIPO, the University of Geneva, or other institutions.
