"Protection and enforcement of IP contributes to the promotion of technological innovation and to the transfer and dissemination of technology for social and economic welfare"
Intellectual Property (IP) management and Technology transfer are the two building blocks of any innovation-driven organization.
IP management includes the strategic protection of the Intellectual property assets including patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, designs and other forms of IP.
