Intellectual Property and New Technologies program delivers comprehensive knowledge on the legal protection and commercial exploitation of new technologies. New technologies create new opportunities in life and science and build bridges between people from different countries and cultures. They also pose serious challenges, especially for the intellectual property law. The program offers an extensive curriculum on intellectual property law related to new technologies, considered from an international perspective. It adopts a comparative approach to IP regulations, with EU law serving as a main point of reference.

The program is developed in cooperation with the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO). Its main focus is on the following issues: new technologies and patent law; copyright in the digital era; commercial communication in the context of trademarks, designs, and unfair competition; data protection, privacy, and personal rights on the Internet; Internet service providers’ liability; and more. The program takes advantage of new technologies. Its first, non-residential semester is realized online, through a state-of-the-art e-learning platform. The remaining two residential semesters, which take place in Kraków, combine traditional lectures and seminars with e-learning.

The Intellectual Property and New Technologies program is organized by the Jagiellonian University of Krakow, the World Intellectual Property Organization, and the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland
