CSIS Renewing American Innovation Celebrates World IP Day
In honor of World Intellectual Property (IP) Day 2023, the Renewing American Innovation Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), together with LeadershIP, recognize that renewing the U.S.’s commitment to securing intellectual property rights for U.S. inventors are critical for national security. A strong intellectual property regime has been a pillar of U.S. economic and technological competitiveness, providing the incentive for invention and commercialization of countless essential technologies the world enjoys today.
This year, the CSIS Renewing American Innovation Project is celebrating World IP Day with a broadcast with CSIS president John Hamre, along with important messages from Senator Chris Coons of Delaware and Senator Thom Tillis on North Carolina. Following the speeches, CSIS plans to convene a group of female IP experts and innovators to discuss this year’s theme “Women and IP: Accelerating Innovation and Creativity.”
In the U.S. in all regions, women are shaping the world through their imagination, ingenuity and hard work, but often face significant challenges in accessing the knowledge, skills, resources and support they need to thrive. World Intellectual Property Day 2023 is an opportunity to celebrate all talented women around the world.
