Umbrella Mission

Intellectual property is critical to moving society forward. However, complexity and uncertainty of IP rights presents delicate problems that impede progress. Until now, no organization has focused on the prosperity of society from all IP has to offer.

Georgia has the ecosystem and assets to nurture & strengthen otherwise vulnerable ideas. Through GIPA a collaborative partnership has been established comprising academic, business, government, and individual leaders - across public and private institutions, science and technology centers, and artistic creators. Together we deliver IP thought leadership, programs and events to help all communities create, protect and enable IP for the benefit of global society.
