Who We Are

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Global Innovation Policy Center is working around the world to champion innovation and creativity through intellectual property standards that create jobs, save lives, advance global economic and cultural prosperity, and generate breakthrough solutions to global challenges.

Our Belief

In the 21st century, innovation and creativity remain the driving forces behind America’s competitiveness and economic future. Intellectual property-intensive industries employ more than 40 million Americans and account for 74% of exports and $5.8 trillion in GDP. We cannot thrive without strong protection of intellectual property (IP) rights, which incentivize new and improved innovation and creation, encourage investment and commercialization, and help advance the spread of knowledge globally.

Our Goals

The GIPC is leading efforts to promote innovation and creativity globally by advocating for strong IP standards. This endeavor begins in Washington, D.C. and extends to countries and multilateral fora around the world. Through a wide variety of programs, initiatives, and activities, we:

  • Provide world leaders, academia, industry experts, and the general public the authoritative business voice on innovation policy.
  • Ensure domestic and international legislation, trade agreement negotiations, and multilateral discussions foster a healthy global innovation and creative environment.
  • Bring together IP stakeholders at all levels – from governments to grassroots – to develop solutions together.
