Elie Sung, a doctorate student in the Public Policy program at Georgia Tech who is scheduled to graduate in 2019, recently won the “Best Paper for an Emerging Scholar” Award from EPIP, the European Policy for Intellectual Property organization.
EPIP is the leading European platform for the analysis and discussion of intellectual property systems and intangible assets, according to its web site. It is an international, independent, interdisciplinary, non-profit association of researchers that grew out of a network financed by the European Commission in 2003 - 2005.
This award is quite an accomplishment for Sung, as the competition was fierce. Candidates had to commit to attend the conference and had to present their paper to a panel of reviewers. Only two young scholars were granted the Best Student Paper Award.
Earlier this year, Sung received the Best Presentation Award at the Technology Management and Policy Graduate Consortium at Stony Brook University on Long Island’s North Shore. Her recognition this year is well deserved.
