Twice a year, the EIPIN network organises international conferences. These conferences address the role of IP as a complex adaptive system in the different stages of the innovation life cycle. In particular, they will also explore each work package in more detail:

  • Workpackage 1: “Intellectual Property as a Complex Adaptive System”;
  • Workpackage 2: “Governance of Production and Technologies”;
  • Workpackage 3: “Adjudication, Justice and Enforcement”; and
  • Workpackage 4: “Allocation of Rights, Actors and Institutions”.


Speakers in the conferences encompass academic scholars as well as speakers from the partner organisations. In addition, civil servants from other international organisations, private sector associations, civil society organisations and businesses are invited.
