What is covered in the Summer Program?

The Summer Program focuses on theoretical and practical elements of international intellectual property (IP) transactions within a global economy. Leading IP academics and practitioners will support the participants in the Program through a combination of:

  • interactive seminars,
  • small-group tutoring sessions,
  • study visits to Airbus and Google, alongside
  • a two-day negotiation workshop on how to establish terms for a license agreement in a real-life setting.

By the end of the Summer Program, participants should have gained strategy development skills for licensing IP assets across borders and addressing IP issues in an advanced digital environment.
