About the Roundtable

The CIIPC conducts the Annual Roundtable on Innovation, Intellectual Property and Competition to offer a forum for members of the academia, policy makers, industry stakeholders and academically minded practitioners to engage on emerging issues at the interface of innovation, intellectual property & competition law and policy.

The First Annual Roundtable on Innovation, Intellectual Property and Competition, held last year in New Delhi, was well attended.

This time around, we look forward to continuing this dialogue through open and nuanced discussions around the relevant and contentious issues concerning this area of law and economic policy, with special emphasis on recent developments in India.
