The main aim of the EIPTN is to bring together individuals from across Europe to exchange ideas on best practice in intellectual property teaching and learning activities.

In particular, the EIPTN aims to awareness and disseminate information relating to:
innovations in the teaching of intellectual property;
problem-based teaching and learning;
and multi-disciplinary teaching and learning.

We are working on the following:
The following substantive objectives were decided by the Committee, proposed by the Chair and approved by EIPTN participants at our 2018 Poitiers Meeting:‎
