Do systems of intellectual property frustrate or facilitate the inventive activities and entrepreneurial processes central to economic growth? This is a central question facing societies around the world, but there is a dearth of data-driven, peer-refereed scholarship that speaks to it.

The goal of Working Group on Intellectual Property, Innovation, and Prosperity (Hoover IP²) is to produce that body of impactful, peer-refereed scholarship. We do so by subjecting academic papers in progress to criticism and discussion by other academics, by government officials, and by representatives from the private sector.

Our goal, in short, is to bring data to a debate that has been long on rhetoric, but short on facts, dispassionately gathered and analyzed.
