The Global Congress is the main convening of a global network of over 800 researchers, activists, and practitioners who work on the intersection of intellectual property and promotion of the public interest. The core goal is to promote evidence-based policy-making by fostering partnerships between academics and policy advocates from around the world.


The Congress is now accepting applications to present or host sessions, to sponsor, or to request an early invitation for the purposes of securing a travel visa. Applications are due May 15, 2018.

An application to attend the Congress, including the Pre-Congress Training and Strategy Sessions, will be released May 15, 2018.
