About us

The EU CN IP Academic Network is an initiative to support exchange between European and Chinese universities specialising in intellectual property.  The aim is to support research and collaboration by creating opportunities to share ideas and conduct topical research to support policy making for the future.

The idea was launched during the first EU-China IP Forum in Suzhou organised by IP Key in May 2017. Since then it has been developed further in conjunction with European and Chinese universities in order to create a network that serves both regions objectives.  For more information on the development of the programme please refer to the EU-China IP Research & Networking Draft Guidelines.
