The CIPnet project aims at promoting the modernisation and harmonisation of Intellectual Property Management practices in the higher education system, with a view to enhance university-industry collaborations and contribute to economic and social development in China.

CIPnet operates targeting the Chinese Higher Education system, thanks to a complementary consortium involving 7 of the most relevant Chinese Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) with geographical balance and 3 European HEIs with a long-standing experience in Technology Transfer (TT), Intellectual Property (IP) Management and international cooperation. The project is fully aligned with the Chinese Government TT and IP Policy and will be an excellent complementary bottom-up initiative to build the capacity of the Chinese Universities in TT and IP management.
