New industries and new business models continue to be developed, while some more traditional models are also renewed with new ideas and  regulatory developments. Advanced IP Licensing Academy is a part of the program of the IPR Summer School of the IPR University Center. This part of the program is  targeted to practitioners and academics with a focus on the latest developments in the licensing world.

In this year´s Academy, the participants will explore  the latest developments and the hottest trends. The Academy will give a broad overview about licensing business models. The working method for this year’s academy is focused on dialogue – we will have a number of interesting panels, discussions, keynotes and workshop. We are presenting  both well-known speakers and rising stars, experienced practitioners and fresh thinkers. The combination will allow the participants to gain a very broad coverage of multiple topics, and an in-depth view of key questions.
