Event description

The Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) and the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) are pleased to host the 6th Annual IP Data & Research Conference on Wednesday, .

The objective of this conference is to disseminate intellectual property (IP) research from leading experts to further innovation and inform policy, while considering how to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion within the field.

This year's conference will be centered around five themes: "Firms and the Economics of IP"; "Diversity and Inclusion in the IP and Innovation Ecosystem"; "IP Use and Awareness"; "Emerging Technologies"; and "IP Challenges and Solutions". The full agenda for the conference will soon follow.

We are also happy to announce that we will host the third annual Data Day on Tuesday, . The objective of this side event will allow researchers to share the "how" of their research, presenting the data and analytic techniques used to draw their conclusions.
