European IP Project – IP Key – Hiring and Internship Opportunities in Beijing

This email comes from the China Law listserve, via Dan Prud’homme:

“IP Key (“Intellectual Property: A Key to Sustainable Competitiveness”) is a three year project running from July 2013 – June 2016 intended to make China’s intellectual property (IP) framework more effective, fair, transparent, and otherwise based upon best practices. The project, funded by the European Commission and implemented and co-funded by the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) with support from the European Patent Office (EPO), builds on the past EU-China IPR2 project amongst other EU-China initiatives. IP Key aims to meet its objective via implementing a number of activities covering all types of IP rights that advocate for change in the Chinese system and provide awareness on the workings of the Chinese and European IP systems.

Over the next few months we will be recruiting 3 Project Officers (see first job ad here: and 1-2 Interns (see first job ad here: to join our Beijing office. Candidates that are Chinese nationals are preferred.”

I have previously reported on the excellent work of this group and its predecessors including its alumni.  The website of the predecessor project, IPR 2, still remains a valuable resource.  This is a great opportunity.
