The CEIPI was pleased to welcome, on 9 May 2019, Mr. Pascal Faure, Director General of INPI, for a conference and for the renewal of their cooperation agreement.

The CEIPI and the French National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) show a long cooperation. Eager to develop both their collaboration on training in intellectual property law, as well as common research areas, the two institutes signed a framework agreement on 6 June 2014 in Strasbourg, which was completed each year through work plans setting out common actions in the field of industrial property training and research; as the framework agreement came to its end, both partners have decided to renew it.

The signature of the renewal of this cooperation agreement took place on 9 May 2019, during a ceremony organized at CEIPI, in the presence of the President of the University of Strasbourg, Mr. Michel Deneken, the Director General of INPI, Mr. Pascal Faure and the Director General of CEIPI, Mr. Christophe Geiger and members of CEIPI team.

The ceremony preceded the conference of Mr. Pascal Faure on the topic “The vision of INPI on ‘Loi PACTE’”.
