World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) undertakes multiple programs to promote IP education and knowledge. One of such program is “Academic Institutions Program “ which aims to support advanced education in IP Law by providing fully funded scholarships to qualified nationals from relevant public institutions and universities in developing counties, LDCs and countries with economies in transition. Under this initiative, several joint Master’s degree Programs on IP law are being offered in cooperation with academic institutions in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe and Latin America.
Being an important player of national IP system, we may encourage our ORIC and TISC officials to compete for above mentioned opportunity. Moreover, interested officials may regularly visit WIPO Academy website to explore other similar activities to improve their IP knowledge.
