The Centre for International Intellectual Property Studies, or Centre d'Etudes Internationales de la Propriété Intellectuelle (CEIPI) in French (formerly the "Centre for International Industrial Property Studies", or "Centre d'Etudes Internationales de la Propriété Industrielle" in French), is a Strasbourg, France-based training centre for specialists in intellectual property law. It was founded in 1963, as part of the University of Strasbourg by Professors Daniel Bastian (law) and Hubert Forestier (chemistry).[1]

The Centre is organized in three sections: the French section, the international section, and the research section. The CEIPI is member of the European Intellectual Property Institutes Network (EIPIN). The former General Director of the CEIPI, Professor Yves Reboul, left office on August 31, 2008 after serving two consecutive five-year terms.
