FICPI is proud to sponsor the Annual Essay Competition organised by ATRIP, the International Association for the Advancement of Teaching and Research in Intellectual Property.
We are pleased to report that that the 2021 edition of the Essay Competition was won by Amy Tesoriero of the University of Technology Sydney for their essay titled “Using the Flexibilities of Article 30 TRIPS to Implement Patent Exceptions in Pursuit of Sustainable Development Goal 3”.
FICPI president, Julian Crump, will present Amy with their prize at the end of the upcoming ATRIP 40th Annual Congress on June 24, 2022. Fittingly, the theme of the Congress is “IPR in times of Crisis: Lessons Learned from the COVID-19 Pandemic”.
Julian will also present prizes to the winners of the competition in 2019 and 2020: Pratyush Nath Upreti of the University of Helsinki for “A TWAIL Critique of Intellectual Property and Related Disputes in Investor-State Dispute Settlement” and Jingwen Guo of the Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London, London for “Liberty, Copyright, and Community – Confucianism and the Protection of Intellectual Property in Pre-modern China”.

Congratulations to all the winners!
