I3PM Advisory Board

The first face-to-face I3PM Advisory Board meeting took place on January 13, 2016 at the CEIPI Institute of the University of Strasbourg. The I3PM Advisory Board is a new body of I3PM. The I3PM Advisory Board members come from industry and academia and will establish an ongoing communication between industry and academia in the field of IP management. One goal is to identify current IP management issues in various industries and channel corresponding research questions to academic institutions being active in this field. This way it is expected that solutions of practical relevance will be developed which can then be provided to IP managers. The current I3PM Advisory Board members are: Brian Hinman (Phillips), Peter Bittner (I3PM), Bo Heiden (University of Gothenburg), Thibaud Lelong (CEIPI), and Udo Meyer (BASF ? not on the picture). The first meeting was supported also by Bent Lundsager (I3PM ? second from right) who is chairman of the ?I3PM meets academia? initiative.

The question of whether an international application could claim the priority of an earlier application with the same filing date as the international application (for incorporation by reference of missing parts), the WG agreed to discuss the matter at its next session with a view to providing an opinion on the matter for consideration by the Paris Union Assembly as the competent decision-making body. Also discussed were national phase entry using ePCT and expanding the right to practice before RO/IB. The eighth session of the Working Group is tentatively scheduled to be held in Geneva in May/June 2015.

European Master of Intellectual Property Law and Management - From IP Expert to IP Manager (2015 session).

In January 2015, the ninth consecutive Master of IP Law and Management (MIPLM) will start at CEIPI in Strasbourg. Participants from all across Europe with different professional backgrounds have successfully completed their studies with us. This European master’s program was designed especially for experienced IP professionals (three years in the IP field) as well as European patent attorneys and lawyers.

Its ultimate objective is to qualify experienced IP professionals to act as IP managers with the practical skills and knowledge to deal with the new challenges of wealth creation and profit generation. Participants acquire first and foremost a new understanding of how intellectual property works in business models and are conveyed the necessary skills to achieve the systematic alignment of IP management and business objectives.

The course provides an international networking platform for IP managers and in addition enables participants to build long-lasting relationships and to further develop relevant topics within the field of IP management. Being part of this international alumni network also offers new job opportunities and publication possibilities.

The program combines legal, economic and management studies and includes lectures from leading scholars and experienced practitioners in the field of IP law and management. Due to the extensive network of lecturers in academia and industry, the MIPLM is able to continually relay the latest topics to its participants. The part-time training comprises a period of six months with monthly one-week long lectures. Successful participants will be awarded the academic degree Master of Intellectual Property Law and Management (MIPLM) by the President of the University of Strasbourg, which can be considered a prerequisite for a doctoral thesis (depending on the requirements of the university where admission is being sought).

From previous participants we have received numerous favourable comments, such as the following:

“A great experience during the course was the network we established over the six weeks.” Annegret Rangel Vale, IP Consultant, Cascais, Portugal

“This program definitely changed my way of thinking of IP as a legal instrument to support business into seeing IP as a business opportunity on its own.” Peter Bittner, European Patent Attorney, SAP AG, Walldorf, Germany

“High quality lecturers for a course of high value.” Dr. Gauthier Obrecht, Patent Department, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharma, Biberach, Germany
