Who Are We?
The CIPP’s mission is to advance research and policy formation of intellectual property and innovation systems.
To achieve this mission the CIPP focuses on three interconnected priority areas:
- The CIPP carries out interdisciplinary research to understand the role of intellectual property policies and rules in contributing to creativity and innovation. In particular, the Centre examines if and how intellectual property contributes to broad social goals such as increased health, cultural development, access to information and economic growth.
- The CIPP enhances understanding of intellectual property and innovation systems among students at McGill University at the undergraduate, graduate and executive level, as well as within the community.
- The CIPP disseminates its research through workshops and conferences.
