Participants are teachers and researchers in intellectual property and closely related disciplines. The programme aims to update them on the activities and instruments of WIPO and the WTO. It focuses on policy issues that are discussed or negotiated in the two organizations and places these issues in their wider legal and policy contexts. The colloquium aims to strengthen the ability of developing and transition countries’ universities to develop national expertise in intellectual property, providing enhanced policy support for these countries on current negotiations or discussions in the two organizations.
