The 2022 IP Statistics for Decision Makers (IPSDM) conference will take place on 14-15 June in Warsaw, Poland. The event is jointly organised by the Polish Patent Office (PPO) and the OECD, with the financial backing of the European Commission, and support from the Polish Ministry of Economic Development and Technology. In light of ongoing international travel restrictions, the event will be held in a hybrid format, combining an in-person conference experience with a virtual component.
The conference will be a unique opportunity to discuss IP-related issues and will bring together high-level policy experts, top academics and representatives from the private sector. As in previous editions, the focus will be on how IP data, statistics and analysis can be used to inform decision-makers in both the public and private sectors, and to identify key data needs. The conference will discuss advances in the analysis of intellectual property rights statistics, and the role that these knowledge-based assets may play in shaping innovation, competition, business strategy and dynamics and, more generally, economic performance.
Plenary sessions will be dedicated to the following topics:
The conference will be preceded by a few pre-event meetings (PATSTAT introduction for beginners; IP data workshop) on 13 June.
