JPO Conducted IPR Training Courses for IP Practitioners and IP Trainers

July 3, 2015

Under the aim of strengthening the protection of intellectual property rights (IPRs), the Japan Patent Office (JPO) has been inviting trainees from developing and emerging countries of the Asia-Pacific region, Latin America, and Africa, and conducting training programs for them in Japan.

From June 15 (Mon) to June 26 (Fri), the JPO conducted the IPR Training Course for IP Practitioners. This course is designed for individuals working in companies and law firms, who are involved with IP work. Also, from June 17 (Wed) to July 1 (Wed), the JPO conducted the IPR Training Course for IP Trainers. This course is designed for individuals from universities and research institutes, who are involved with promoting and raising public awareness on the importance of IP systems. The course for the IP practitioners intends to raise the level of the trainees’ basic knowledge, which they need to have for conducting work involving the protection and the utilization of IP in their respective countries. The IP Trainers Course intends to raise the level of the trainees’ knowledge and skills, which they need to have for promoting and raising awareness on IP in their respective countries, especially for IP education. Both courses aim at deepening the trainees’ overall understanding and raising their professional capabilities.

A total of 59 trainees attended the Courses, having discussions with teachers and peers, and engaging in practical exercises. They also had an opportunity to visit Japanese companies and schools. The JPO has high expectations that the trainees will play important and active roles in their countries.
