Dr Janice Denoncourt, Senior Lecturer at Nottingham Law School and member of the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law, recently attended the 9th Annual European Intellectual Property Teachers' Network (EIPTN) conference in Sofia, Bulgaria on July 4 and 5, 2016.

The EIPTN is the Europe-wide association of academics involved in the research and teaching of IP law, of whose Organising Committee Janice has been a member since earlier this year. Founded in 2007, the EIPTN has a membership of more than 200 IP specialists from Europe and further afield and is sponsored by the EU Intellectual Property Office.

Janice has been active in EIPTN since 2010 and her contributions have focused on how to improve teaching and communicating IP law concepts to a variety of stakeholders. She says: "IP teachers are important because they make all the IP professions possible".

At the Sofia conference, hosted by the University of Library Studies and Information Technologies, Janice chaired a panel which featured papers on educational initiatives in managing intellectual property, practitioner involvement and the connection to entrepreneurship.

Janice also presented a paper on 'The Creative Identity and Intellectual Property', which will be published in the Nottingham Law Journal later this year.

While in Sofia, Janice was invited to take over as Chair of the EIPTN Organising Committee in view of preparations for the EIPTN's 10th anniversary in 2017.
