Innovation and Intellectual Property Rights

Over the break I read Innovation in Real Places by @dbreznitz - great overview on the need for local adaptations on innovation policy (more to come on this including how eCampusOntario is helping our sector to support private+public research and development partnerships).

But I wanted to point out the bit below on the need for regions to #BeSmarter on #intellectualproperty and #intellectualpropertyrights. This is exactly why we are supporting a call for proposals to develop an advanced curriculum course focused on intellectual property (IP) to support the implementation of the Government of Ontario’s Intellectual Property Action Plan. Read more here.

The Advanced IP Curriculum program will ensure that the Ontario innovation "community members are highly IPR-educated" and will be "the savviest IPR strategists."

Download the Advanced IP Curriculum Call for Proposals and register for the technical briefing on the program - being held January 11, 2022  -12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. ET.

Let's work together to build on Ontario's world-leading research excellence and flourishing entrepreneurial ecosystem. Together we can ensure Ontario's innovators can #BeSmarter on #intellectualpropertyrights. Our future prosperity depends on this.
