Consortium of Chinese and European Research Institutions IPRNME

CO-REACH, the network of European institutions for science and technology funding, which support cooperation with China in natural sciences, medicine, technology as well as in the social and human sciences, promoted a consortium of Chinese and European Research Institutions, IPRNME (Intellectual Property Rights in the New Media Environment) in 2010 and 2011.

 

The main objective of the project was to foster the exchange of knowledge about regulatory concepts with regard to copyright and intellectual property for the Information Society and their implementation, as well as jointly work on concepts of regulatory choice to meet new challenges that are brought about through social and technological change in new media environments. For this purpose, joint working papers were developed and workshops as well as international summer schools for students and doctoral candidates were executed. Students from the Faculty of Law at Hamburg University discussed questions of internet legislature in China.

The partners are the Institute of Law of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Strathclyde University, Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration, Molengraaff Institute for Private Law at Utrecht University, and the Hans Bredow Institute.

 

For Germany, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation) participates in CO-REACH.
