JPO Conducted Training Course on Patent Examination Management

November 13, 2017

Under the aim of strengthening the protection of intellectual property rights in order to support developing countries with the development of human resources who engage in the industrial property rights system, 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 November 2 to 10, the JPO conducted the Training Course on Patent Examination Management, and a total of 17 staff in charge of patent examination management in IP offices from 7 countries attended the course. In this training course, they deepened their knowledge pertaining to quality management of patent examination, business management and human resource development for patent examiners through sharing experiences of the JPO and discussions among their countries.

The JPO has high expectations that the trainees will play important and active roles in their countries.
