This year's Pre-Conference Workshop aligns with the conference agenda and focuses on coordinating responses, aligning resources, and leveraging opportunities.

Together, we will examine case studies to identify the factors that facilitate illicit trade. Together, we will also propose measures law enforcement, the public and private sectors, and free trade zones can take to detect and help prevent it from reoccurring and mitigate any consequences.

Report on International IP Crime Conference, 2023

The 16th annual IP Crime Conference report is now available, which provides session insights, best practices, and exciting outcomes that occurred at the 2023 event held in Lillestrøm, Norway, from 25 to 27 September.

The theme of the Conference was "Pathways to Solutions," with panel and training sessions focused on research and technology, leadership and diversity, and environmental impact. This was the first time a comprehensive Conference report was prepared to ensure that critical information covered at the event could be shared widely.

IP crime is a global and complex problem that has innumerable consequences impacting human health, public safety, and the environment. The Conference report is a new tool that stakeholders from various sectors can use to solve safety challenges and mitigate consequences associated with crime.

The IP Crime Conference is a unique event. Through the report, the Organizing Committee aims to provide extra value to delegates and other stakeholders to ensure insights, best practices, and critical information is shared and acted upon.

Oslo Armchair Innovation Sessions

During the 2023 International Law Enforcement IP Crime Conference, the Organizers piloted the Oslo Armchair Innovation Sessions that featured interviews with subject matter experts.

With so much expertise accessible in one place and at one time, these recorded interviews provide expanded insights, best practices and additional value to delegates and other cross-sector stakeholders who could not attend the event. The sessions enabled a more in-depth study of the subject matter areas highlighted in the conference agenda, leveraging the knowledge and experience of the experts.

The Oslo Conference Organizers thank the interviewers and subject matter experts for their time creating these sessions and believe they will be well received.

We hope you will enjoy the interviews.
