The Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property (PIJIP), International Legal Studies Program (ILSP) and the Brazilian International Trade Scholars (ABCI Institute) invite you to: Innovation and Intellectual Property: The Brazilian Business Agenda

Speaker: Dr. Diana Jungmann, Intellectual Property Program Coordinator, National Confederation of Industry (CNI), Brazil

Discussant: Dr. Flavio Campestrin Bettarello, Head of Trade Policy, Intellectual Property, Services, Transportation & Trilateral Cooperation, Embassy of Brazil in Washington

In 2010, the National Confederation of Industry (CNI) has launched the Brazilian Intellectual Property Program for Industrial Innovation: a Latin American landmark involving extensive capacity building (education and training) on IP-related issues. Intellectual property transforms knowledge into assets of economic value generating wealth to countries. The future of global competitiveness is strongly connected to the commercial exploitation of the rights over proprietary innovations. Brazil has an opportunity to be part of the intellectual property world map in the 21st century economy. The speaker will explain this initiative in detail and highlight how the Brazilian example may be useful to other countries.

Light breakfast and refreshments will be served
