The 11th CEIPI summer school in European intellectual property law will be held from 1st to 12th July 2019. Unique in Europe and in the world, this Summer School offers a two-week training as theoretical as practical for both scientific and law backgrounds. In fact, the division of the course into two parts, the first devoted to a general stream and the second to a specialized stream, during which students may opt for a “Patent path” or a “Trademark and Designs path” grants to this Summer School its specificity.

The Summer School aims at providing a general overview of intellectual property in the context of the European Union’s legal system, and likewise, to bring practical solutions in regard to intellectual and industrial property rights litigation in Europe. The course is addressed especially to students and practitioners willing to gain a solid background in European and international intellectual property law.

All participants who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of attendance. Attendance and active participation in at least 80% of the program is required.

The lecturers are selected from the academic staff of CEIPI, from experts in the intellectual property field, including professors and experienced practitioners but also official representatives, examiners and members of opposition chambers. Prof. Wurzer will give an overview on IP strategies in Europe to protect digital business models.

Events are organized such as a boat-trip around Strasbourg, a visit of European Institution or a guided tour in the heart of the wine road with a wine-tasting. During the day, learn and debate and by night, enjoy the nice city of Strasbourg. Meet practitioners from across Europe and share this marvelous experience with the other participants coming from all around the world!
