Long description
This two-week colloquium is the 11th jointly organized by the WTO and WIPO for teachers of intellectual property from developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The colloquium is also open to limited participation of teachers from developed countries. The colloquium seeks to be a multidisciplinary event, open to economists and other university teachers working in the field of intellectual property.

The colloquium will update university teachers on the activities and instruments of the WIPO and the WTO with focus on important policy issues under negotiation or discussion in the two organizations. The colloquium will further strengthen and give structure to the exchange of practical information on relevant national or regional experiences between university teachers and the two Secretariats.
