TranSIP Research Project

The Academy project "Legal Transplant For Innovation and Creativity - A Sino-Finnish Comparative Study on the Governance of Intellectual Property Rights" (TranSIP) is a comparative law research project which undertakes collaborative research in academic institutes in China and Finland. Beyond the named partners to the projects in China, the consortium envisions extensive international collaborations in Europe, and US.The core of the research explores the interaction of the law and the changes in the society, through regulation of economic activities as observed in the development of Chinese intellectual property laws. In particular, we explore the use of legal transplant as a method of inducing societal and behavioural changes, in particular to promote innovation and creativity in China.
