EIPIN partner Munich Intellectual Property Law Center (MIPLC) is a cooperative endeavour
among the University of Augsburg, the Technische Universität München, The George Washington University Law School, Washington D.C., and the Max Planck
Institute for Intellectual Property and Competition Law.
The University of Augsburg was founded in 1970 and is thus one of the most modern universities in Bavaria. At approximately 19,000 students and an
academic staff of about 1,200, it is still of a manageable size, yet it attracts students and scholars from far beyond its immediate catchment
area. The University of Augsburg offers a wide range of academic programmes in arts, humanities, natural sciences, business and law. In its research,
the University of Augsburg connects local with global perspectives in a network of academic discourses centered on five focus areas: Transnational
Studies, Health Sciences, Resource Management, Materials Science and Applied Computer Science. In addition, top-level research is being conducted
in all disciplines represented at the university.
