IPOPHL launches new cooperation with DOST for agriculture and natural resources’ advancement

By encouraging the use of patent information, the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL) has, once again, collaborated with the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) to advance the country’s research and technology advancements in agriculture and natural resources sectors.

It should be noted that this is not the first time IPOPHL cooperated with DOST. In the past, the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL), together with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) has worked together to launch a program to fast-track over 1,000 IP applications.

Called the “Science and Technology Superhighway” Project, the DOST-led initiative tasks IPOPHL to process a total of 1,050 DOST-funded IP applications through its existing express lanes and other available modes for faster IP protection. This program will enable the government’s investments in research to create a greater impact on society and its culture of innovation.

The hunt for patents in agricultural R&D

IPOPHL’s Intellectual Property Business Services and Development Division (IPBSDD) is providing a series of patent search and mining training to 17 state universities and colleges, also known as SUCs. In addition, they also provide assistance to the research and development institutions, also known as RDIs, in support of studies on 17 farm and fishery commodities identified in the priority R&D programs of IPOPHL.

The IPBSDD’s cooperation with the PCAARRD has been stronger than ever. This is the second time these organizations collaborate to promote the use of patent data in R&D planning. Abaca, bamboo, banana, crab, goat, livestock feed resources, mango, milkfish, natural rubber, rice, shrimp, and swine were among the 12 PLRs obtained during the first joint project, which lasted from 2017 to 2019.

The last collaboration’s goal was to provide a comprehensive analysis of available worldwide patent data, such as patent grants, published pending applications and utility models, and other information on commodities-related technologies. These technologies are identified by PCAARRD and its stakeholders as strategically essential in making the Philippine agriculture sector more competitive.

Expert Opinions

Rowel S. Barba, Director General of the IPOPHL has stated about the collaboration’s goal: “Using patent information to obtain insight into the evolution of technologies in specific sectors of interest is part of IPOPHL’s aim to make IP relevant to the people in concrete and practical ways enabled by technology and knowledge transfer. This patent mining initiative is an illustration of how IP may be used in the real world,”

He also added that: “The IPOPHL’s partnership with PCAARRD aims to raise awareness of patent information as a valuable resource for creating research programs and financing strategies in a variety of technical clusters, including agriculture. Understanding the patent environment also aids in the identification of collaborators and partners, the exploration of R&D jumping-off places, and the support of a data-driven strategy.”

On July 5, IPOPHL has launched its patent mining mentorship series. From now on to the future, IPOPHL will constantly work in unity with other organizations to achieve the goal that all RDIs and SUCs have completed their research on the relevant topics.
