National workshop on “Intellectual Property Rights In Biotechnology- Promoting Positive Minds” on 19th and 20th December 2013

DBT-New Delhi sponsored workshop is a vital initiative to create awareness among the young innovators and budding scientists about the importance of IPR in Biotechnology. There are many institutes spread across the country which train the students particularly in Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and it would be definitely very beneficial if the students, faculties and the research scholars get a proper training so that they come to known about the different procedure and modalities to be followed and adapted while applying for patent of their innovation or invention. Successful management of intellectual property rights such as copyright, database right, trademarks and patients in life science research, is fundamental for the faculty and research scholars in any academic institution. Academic and Research Institutions are concerned with successfully managing projects and research initiatives and the protection of their IP Rights which will benefit all stake holders. It is also important for students, faculties, research scholars, scientists, authors and other creators working on projects to appreciate what is involved in establishing ownership, rights and interests in valuable original material. This workshop focuses on best practice: what is essential, what is advisable, and what are pitfalls to be avoided. Participants will learn how most effectively to deal with the material they work with: to identify, verify and protect the intellectual property rights in it, to commercially exploit and disseminate it to add value and also how to handle third party material legitimately. Commercial strategies on how to benefit from the IPRs will be emphasized. An Academic perspective will be taken into consideration in this workshop. There are more than 70 participants were participated all over the state and other parts of the state were benefited through the workshop.
