Bocconi University is organizing in September 2013 its Seventh Transatlantic Intellectual Property Summer Academy, jointly with the Magister Lvcentinvs on Intellectual Property (University of Alicante, and in cooperation with the University of Trento. Considering the growing role and importance of Intellectual Property in the globalized knowledge-based economy, the European and North-American systems of Intellectual Property protection are confronted with the emergence of new models of protection and management of IP: indeed, there is a real need in, Europe, North America, and fast growing Latin American Countries to reflect together and better share Intellectual Property knowledge and in depth understanding of common Intellectual Property issues. This one week course will focus on IP Rights as economic opportunities, and management of IP Rights in the Transatlantic area including in Latin American Countries, with an inter-disciplinary approach, comprising IP law, IP economics, IP business and IP operational practicalities at an international level.
Thanks to lectures held by leading IP scholars and researchers from 10 countries in Europe and the Americas, participants will have a broad perspective on main IP Protection and Management issues, including in University-Business cooperation, especially at an international and comparative level.
The horizontal and dynamic teaching system will give participants the opportunity to embrace all aspects of IP Rights management in real life by involving case and example studies, practical exercises as well as direct contact with IP operators.
For all lessons, a participatory and interactive teaching approach is chosen, involving business case examples and studies, practical exercises and direct contact opportunities with IP operators and companies in a dynamic, horizontal and open work environment. In addition, free tutor assistance will be available to the participants, in order to ensure cohesion between the participants.
The program (cf. Annex) is composed of three modules (Protection, Management, Exploitation). While it is recommended to participants to attend the whole program, registrations are also allowed, in limited number, for two of the modules only. Participants attending a single module will receive the teaching material corresponding to classes covered and the corresponding certificate.
