The Research Department of CEIPI was created in 2006 and is directed since 2021 by Franck Macrez, Associate Professor at the University of Strasbourg.
Its activities include publications, participation in European and international projects and the organization of academic events, legal workshops and conferences, consultancy and expertise for decision-makers, supervising doctoral thesis.
The center cooperates with numerous centres of excellence in the field of IP research (EIPIN network; Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition in Munich; Technical University in Dresden; Oxford University - Oxford Intellectual Property Research Center; University of Huazhong – Sino-European Institute for Intellectual Property; Intellectual Property Academy of Singapore; University of Washington - Center for Advanced Study and Research on Intellectual Property; Case Western Reserve University School of Law - Spangenberg Center for Law, Technology & the Arts; NYU School of Law; University of Buenos Aires and University of Technology of Sydney). The Research Department participates also in the organization of the research oriented “Master of Laws European and International Intellectual Property Law”.
The Research Department opened starting from the 2015/2016 academic year a new visiting program for foreign researchers. The researchers will have the opportunity to interact with academics from the center and participate in numerous academic activities: conferences, seminars, roundtables, etc. The center will provide a working space and access to specialized libraries.
