JPO Cooperation in Human Resource Development

The JPO invites trainees for short/medium term training courses and long-term researches, as part of the human resource development for the developing countries mainly in the Asia Pacific Region.

In addition to holding follow-up seminars in the trainees’ countries, the JPO provides information in English including issuing alumni magazines and research papers by trainees and posting IPR training course textbooks for the purpose of building a network between the trainees from the developing countries and Japan and exchanging information on the present situation of the IP system in each developing country.
