Intellectual Property rights (IP) are designed to benefit society by providing incentives to introduce new inventions and creations in fields relating to technology (patents), business (brands) and the arts (copyright). They facilitate access to knowledge and inventions and stimulate innovation by resolving information asymmetries, facilitating international competitiveness and trade, and enhancing opportunities for access to finance. Therefore, their purpose is not the exclusive benefit of individuals/corporations but of the public community at large.
But alongside the benefits of IP comes the rules, laws and specific documentation required to ascertain the legality of registered IP or patent, which can be a difficult hurdle for technologists, innovators and entrepreneurs to overcome if not equipped with the necessary knowledge of the case specific system.
2- The Purpose of the Course
The purpose of the training course will be to empower managers and experts to raise the awareness of technologists, innovators, and entrepreneurs in OIC member countries regarding the detailed process of IP documentation and patent registration, as well as the different types of patents and related legal processes.
3- The Overall Scope
The training course will be organized by the INSTP in two stages. The first stage will be a 3-day online training course at the end of which the participants will be tested in order to be evaluated and selected for the second stage.
