About the Event

The Master's Conference on Intellectual Property (MCIP) is centered on Intellectual Property and the related areas. Building upon the success of MCIP 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0, both nationally and internationally, we are pleased to introduce MCIP 4.0 in 2024, themed "IP AND ACCESS." This edition draws inspiration from the current complexities in the intellectual property sector, marked by growing monopolies and reduced accessibility. MCIP 4.0 also highlights the remarkable achievements of marginalized communities and women inventors, creators, and entrepreneurs worldwide. Our objective is to offer a platform for aspiring professionals from various domains, including law, engineering, science, philosophy, and any field related to the theme.
