IP literacy matters
Defining what constitutes intellectual property literacy in a knowledge – economy – and establishing how it is best provided – is central to CIPU’s mission. Like digital literacy, it has become a life-skill for all.
To facilitate IP literacy, CIPU engages in on-going dialogue with diverse IP owners, educators, investors, lawyers, lawmakers and organizations, and tracks developments. The Center holds events and forums, partners with various groups, researches, writes, speaks and reports on global IP awareness activities.
