  • Modern Intellectual Property Governance and "Openness" in Europe: A Long and Winding Road?
  • The University of Antwerp hosts the 8th International Conference on Information Law (ICIL 2018) entitled Modern Intellectual Property Governance and "Openness" in Europe: A Long and Winding Road?, which will take place on December 13-14th in Antwerp. ICIL 2018 is organized by the University of Antwerp (Research Group Government and Law) in collaboration with the Ionian University (Greece), the KU Leuven (CiTiP) and the University of Ghent.
  • ICIL has typically been focusing on access to information, information law, copyright law and ethics. This year we try to broaden the scope of the conference covering a wide variety of topics related to intellectual property law, governance and openness. We have a special interest in Europe, but input from other jurisdictions is also more than welcome. ICIL is also open to scholars from many different disciplines.
