GENERAL OBJECTIVES

Bocconi  University  is  organizing  in  September  2016  the  Tenth  edition  of  the Transatlantic  Intellectual  Property  Summer Academy, jointly  with  the  University of  Alicante  and  the  Magister  Lvcentinvs.  The  topic  of  this  tenth  edition  will  be “Intellectual  Property, Hightech  and  International  Trade”.  Conscious  of  the constant  evolution  of  technology  and  of  its  growing  importance  for  all economic sectors,  through  the  interdisciplinary  approach  which  has  always  characterized the  TIPSA,  this  year’s  Summer  Academy will  focus  on  the  law,  economics, business  and  operational  practicalities  of  international  intellectual  property  and international  trade law  regulation  and  its  effects  on  new  technologies. 

Leading  experts  from  universities,  research  centers,  think  tanks, intergovernmental  organizations,  law  firms  and  businesses coming  from  both sides  of  the  Atlantic  will  lecture  on  the  challenges of new  technologies  and  the solutions  devised  by  intellectual property  and  trade  law  at  the  international  and comparative  level.

The  horizontal  teaching  and  constant  contacts  with  IP  operators  will  also  allow  a thorough  discussion  of  the  management  of intellectual  property  rights,  thanks also  to  real-­life  case  studies  directed  by  renowned  experts  in  international  IP  and trade.
