A word from the President

Dear friends,


Following our General Assembly on June 3, 2019, the members of the Board Committee

met on June 19, in order to establish the composition of the Bureau.


The Bureau is therefore constituted as follows:
President: Pierre Gendraud

Vice-President: Paul Demay

Treasurer: Natalia Kapyrina

Secretary: Gabrielle Pierre-Lenfant


I invite you to join me in thanking Jérôme Sujkowski very warmly, former President,

who has worked so hard for our Association in recent years.


I also take this opportunity to thank you for the trust you place in us and share with you some important points for AACEIPI in 2020.


AACEIPI was founded in 1966, shortly after the birth of CEIPI. We are an Association that already has a long history, and above all we aim to bring together all those who have followed the teaching of CEIPI, as well as all those who are Friends of CEIPI, that is to say all the families of professionals who work in the field of intellectual property.


2020 will be the year of the implementation of the Pacte law, the challenges of which are in particular to adapt the intellectual property system to new economic practices, to meet the needs of all companies with more flexible access routes and strengthen the robustness of industrial property titles.


Rest assured that AACEIPI will continue to work with the competent authorities, in particular with the INPI, as well as with all the institutions concerned on these subjects: this is one of our priorities.


In addition, we will be keen to offer you quality conferences, in close coordination with CEIPI, with the ambition of anchoring them in your calendars as essential and the meeting place for all our members.


Finally, know that we are involved in raising awareness of the trades around IP among the youngest, in particular among CEIPI students, whether they are lawyers or engineers, doctoral students, but also all students of Grandes Ecoles and of Universities. It seems important to us to make this subject and these professions known to future generations, some of whom, we hope, will perhaps have the joy of celebrating our 100 years later.


Finally, I end these few lines with a call to all our members: you are invited to come forward to our Secretary if you wish to help on a subject that is close to your heart. A number of Commissions have been formed to work on the many topics of intellectual property.


All goodwill is welcome, join us.


Pierre Gendraud

President of AACEIPI
