The EPIP PhD Workshop 2020 is organized by Laurie Ciaramella (Telecom Paris & Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition) and Valerio Sterzi (GREThA – University of Bordeaux) and is sponsored by the U.S. Patents & Trademarks Office. The workshop will encompass a masterclass session, and a session during which the students will receive career advice and feedback on their work. In the first part of the workshop students will be introduced to the latest research on the economics and legal aspects of IP and markets for technology in a masterclass of theory and practice. The second part will include a development workshop where a panel of legal and economic experienced scholars will discuss general career options for young scholars in the field of IP. The second part will also provide the students with the opportunity to discuss their previously-submitted work with senior scholars.
