Cornerstone Intellectual Property Foundation, founded in 2008 by Professor Paul Chang Bin Liu with his friends and students, is an academic institute for the promotion of academic exchange and interdisciplinary education concerning intellectual property in Taiwan, in China and around the world.

Professor Liu is an internationally renowned scholar in intellectual property studies. He was awarded the “Outstanding Scholar Award” by the Foundation for the Advancement of Outstanding Scholarship and officially returned to Taiwan from the U.S. in 1996. He has participated in the drafting of regulations and laws about intellectual property and has devoted himself to the development of intellectual property in Taiwan. During his past 20 years in Taiwan, Professor Liu served as the director of the Graduate Institute of Technology and Innovation Management and the founding director of the Graduate Institute of Intellectual Property at National Chengchi University, casting a profound influence on intellectual property research and education in Taipei. Professor Liu also conducts several research projects and interdisciplinary training programs for senior professionals, commissioned by both the public and private sectors. He vigorously facilitates academic collaboration between Taiwan, China, Europe, Japan and the U.S., which contributes to the development of intellectual property in Taiwan.

CIPF focuses on intellectual property creation, protection, management, and application, including policy studies, international and cross-strait academic collaborations, professional development, and other academic and educational affairs. CIPF aims to play a role as advisor for public and government policies and thus make a significant contribution to the development of intellectual property in Taiwan.
