Representatives and delegates who were designated by WIPO from among the 33 selected countries in Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Caucasus and the Mediterranean. The event marked the 4th annual meeting, where WIPO experts convene in Istanbul, in connection with the preparation of the “WIPO Tool on IP Teaching”, following on from the previous Inter-Regional conferences held successively in Poland (June 2009), Bulgaria (May 2010), and Kazakhstan (August 2011).

Under the general theme of managing intellectual property in universities, this conference was intended to focus on the teaching of IP in the context of current developments and challenges that face both the academia and industry, as well as exploring the means for effective commercialization of knowledge-driven intellectual assets.
