Concept Note and Objectives of the Workshop
The universities and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are prominent producers of copyrightable and patentable works. The staff and students are involved in creating teaching material, course material, inventions, software, dissertations, project reports, theses etc.
The research and development activities conducted in universities and HEIs produce outcomes in the form of scholarly publications, inventions, databases, new plant varieties, confidential information, computer programs, etc. which can be protected as IP and also commercialized.
It is essential that universities and HEIs must be familiar with the IP system in order to successfully manage and distribute their IP.
The workshop would familiarize the university stakeholders i.e., students, scholars, faculty members and administrators with knowledge of IPRs. The aim is to inform the creators of intellectual property in the higher education institutions about the relevant intellectual property offices at national and international levels, experts of intellectual property rights in the given fields, and other authorities, institutions.
The workshop would also help stakeholders in effective management of intellectual property rights and acquaint them with the different methods of technology transfer, by developing the knowledge of the relationship between academics, research and IPRs.
