Description

Public Panel:
Intellectual Property Rights in Global Value Chains

Thursday, January 25, 2018
Westin Ottawa
6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

The Centre for International Governance Innovation is pleased to collaborate with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) for high-level public panel on the topic of intellectual property rights in global value chains.

In a highly globalized economy, businesses are increasingly looking to maximize efficiencies and reduce costs by dispersing production. This results in many countries playing a part in the production of a single good. The emergence of these global value chains (GVCs) has become a defining feature of manufacturing and global trade in the 21st Century.

The event will host the first release in Canada of the WIPO Annual report, titled “Intangible Capital in Global Value Chains”. The public panel will discuss how small, medium and large enterprises can effectively manage their intangible assets in GVCs when various stages of production are spread across several countries, and what role intellectual property plays in generating a return on those assets. The panel will feature the following prominent experts in the field of trade and intellectual property:

  • Carsten Fink, WIPO Chief Economist
  • Thomas Cottier, CIGI Visiting Professor at University of Ottawa Faculty of Law, former Managing Director of the World Trade Institute, Professor Emeritus of European and International Economic Law at the University of Bern
  • Charles Sabel, CIGI Senior Fellow and the Maurice T. Moore Professor of Law and Social Science at Columbia Law School
  • Valentina Delich, the Academic Director at FLACSO-Argentina and Senior Advisor on Intellectual Property Rights’ negotiations at the Ministry of Production, Argentina

You are invited to a reception following the Public Panel.

Please RSVP by Wednesday, January 24, 2018, at noon Eastern time.
