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.
