NMB and MyIPO cooperate to organize and improve IP training programsAAA IPRIGHT2
Although Intellectual Property has become an important aspect in recent years, it still hasn’t gained the expected recognition from global organizations around the world. Accordingly, in the 4.0 era, we need to strengthen the approach of IP to the world and through that, develop the world through IP. NMB and MyIPO have led the world on this path by cooperating to organize and improve IP training programs through the TISC initiative.
The Technology and Innovation Support Center (TISC) initiative
NanoMalaysia Berhad (NMB) and the Malaysian Intellectual Property Corporation (MyIPO) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the Technology and Innovation Support Center (TISC) initiative.
Regarding this initiative, WIPO Director General Daren Tang gave a welcome address at the Global TISC Conference on November 29, 2021: “All over the world, countries are increasing their investments in research and development. However, the journey from research to product is challenging, and getting economic outcomes from research investments requires technical knowledge, deep expertise, and close connections between researchers, businesses, and government. TISCs help ease this journey from research to products in two ways. They provide powerful tools that provide knowledge and build expertise, and they have local knowledge in different stakeholders in the innovation ecosystem that allows them to be better connected with one another and in that connection the magic happens.”
The WIPO Technology and Innovation Support Center (TISC) program provides innovators in developing countries with access to locally-based, high-quality technology information and related services, helping them to exploit their innovative potential and to create, protect, and manage their intellectual property (IP) rights.
According to WIPO, the services offered by TISCs may include:
- Access to online patent and non-patent (scientific and technical) resources and IP-related publications;
- Assistance in searching and retrieving technology information;
- Training in database search;
- On-demand searches (novelty, state-of-the-art, and infringement);
- Monitoring technology and competitors;
- Basic information on industrial property laws, management and strategy, and technology commercialization and marketing.
Training programs in the TISC initiative
With the TISC initiative, MyIPO and other organizations will have the capabilities to conduct and organize IP training programs, such as patent searches, patent writing, IP commercialization, and IP marketing, in collaboration with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
These training programs will have WIPO-appointed experts participate. These specialists have very in-depth expertise about Intellectual Property and accordingly, can provide the best bits of advice to the participants.
Teo Bong Kwang, a senior partner and head of the patent department and litigation at Wong Jin Nee & Teo in Malaysia stated about the training programs under the TISC initiative: “We understand that the TISC program, initiated by the World Intellectual Property Organization (“WIPO”), is designed to provide research institutions and innovators in developing countries with access to high-quality technology information and related services. The TISC program has been put in place in Malaysia since the fourth quarter of 2015. The TISC program is coordinated by the so-called “National Focal Point” which is MyIPO in this case. The role of the National Focal Point includes identifying potential and suitable “Host Institution” (“HI” ) to join the TISC program. Through this TISC program and other related services and resources provided by WIPO and MyIPO, the HIs will be equipped to assist local innovators in areas such as
(i) access to IP-related publications and resources;
(ii) searching and retrieving of relevant technical information;
(iii) IP commercialization and IP marketing.
Moreover, under the TISC program, various training in the field of intellectual property is provided by the relevant experts from countries such as the United States and other European countries.”
