IPR Training Course for Promoting Public Awareness of IP

August 5, 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. The programs are designed to support the development of human resources involved with IPR systems in those countries.
This fiscal year, the IPR Training Course for Promoting Public Awareness on IP was held for the first time, from July 28 to 31. The Course is designed for staff in IP Offices who are actively involved in the training courses held in Japan and in the follow-up seminars held after the training courses. The objective of the Course is for the trainees to learn about recent developments in IP and IP-related activities being conducted in Japan for the purpose of disseminating and raising awareness on IP, so that they can make use of what they learn and be better prepared to promote public awareness on IP in their own countries.
The fourteen trainees who participated in the Course learned about projects conducted by the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA), involved with revising IP systems so as to promote direct, foreign investment into the ASEAN countries. They also learned about projects involved with supporting and dessiminating the development of leading-edge technologies . Furthermore, they exchanged information on the current state and the issues regarding information dissemination and public awareness of iIP in each country. They also exchanged opinions with JPO officials about the IPR Training Courses. We have high expectations that the trainees will play important and active roles in their countries.
