On May 2 InSciTe received the confirmation that the “EIPIN IS” European Joint Doctorate (EJD) application was successful. InSciTe is one of the partner organizations in this Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network.

EIPIN IS stands for European Intellectual Property Institutes Network - Innovation Society. It is a comprehensive project at the forefront of multidisciplinary research, examining the role of intellectual property (IP) as a complex adaptive system in innovation. The focus will be on the European regulatory framework for fostering innovation with the aim of enhancing Europe’s capacity for innovation-based sustainable economic growth. The longstanding European Intellectual Property Institutes Network (EIPIN), a consortium of leading research and training centres in the area of intellectual property, is the driving force behind the project. The primary research objective of the programme is to provide political leaders and stakeholders reliable conclusions and recommendations in the form of doctoral IP research on how to deal with the adaptive complexities of innovation cycles that secure economic benefits and uphold justice in the innovation society. The training objectives of the programme focus on the development of guiding inventors and entrepreneurs in the life-cycle of IP-intensive assets and the process of translating intangible inventions into commercially viable products.

Personally I very much look forward to kickstart the creation of a pan-European network of young researchers that engage in science-based research on the role of intellectual property in an innovative society (EIPIN-IS). The cooperation between academic and non-academic partners in the EIPIN-IS will no doubt be very rewarding for the PhD researchers, but also for all of us.” Says Prof. Anselm Kamperman Sanders from Maastricht University Faculty of Law.
