Global IP Champions

Introducing the Global IP Champions Awards

The IP Champions awards, presented by the Global Innovation Policy Center, recognize leading innovators, creators, and the policymakers who support their work. Since 2013, the awards have been presented annually to honorees from around the world at a ceremony hosted by the GIPC in Washington, DC. In 2019, GIPC is recognizing select international honorees in their home countries.

“We’re fortunate to live in an era where IP-driven innovation is changing our lives for better every day, delivering everything from miraculous new cures to creative content at the touch of a button,” said Hirschmann. “the protection of intellectual property incentivizes innovation and entrepreneurship in science, technology, and even art to deliver the latest and greatest products and services. even as we celebrate all that IP does to improve our lives, we urge policymakers to ensure we continue to incentivize more investments in innovation and creativity.”

– David Hirschmann, President and CEO of GIPC
