WIPO-Luiss 1st Global INTAN-Invest Conference
Intangible Assets in the Global Economy Better Data for Better Policy Intangible assets are increasingly significant in innovation performance, both within individual companies and at a national level. Despite their pivotal role in driving innovation, productivity and competitiveness, our understanding of the size, impact and composition (including R&D, human capital, know-how, design, data) of intangible assets remains limited. To address these knowledge gaps, we need access to better statistics to understand the dynamics within companies and sectors, and to improve pro-growth policies. Better metrics are also needed to improve innovation finance, including work on intellectual property-backed innovation finance initiatives. To address these goals, the Luiss Business School and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) have formed a partnership with prominent international scholars and institutions. The results of this partnership will be released annually via the WIPO-Luiss Global Intangible Investment Highlights, highlighting the key trends in intangible investment, as well as via the Global INTAN-Invest Database. The first release of our results will take place in Rome on 6-7 May 2024 at the inaugural WIPO – Luiss Global INTAN-Invest Conference. The conference will be held in a hybrid format. Due to the limited number of places, please register by 29 April 2024 to attend in person, using this registration form.
