The road to becoming an IP based nation is a necessary one that Malaysia must take in order to become a high income nation. The key to this is to increase innovation and thereby create home grown intellectual property assets from which can be derived economic benefits for businesses. This path however is fraught with challenges and requires a road map, clear strategy and careful planning.
The Malaysian Intellectual Property Association (MIPA) is proud to host an Intellectual Property and Innovation conference to generate discussion on this important issue entitled “Innovation and IP – What’s next for Malaysia”, to be held in Empire Hotel, Subang Jaya from 22-23 June 2011.
This Conference will bring together national and regional experts from both fields of innovation and intellectual property and is intended to educate and inform the various government, technology, innovation and intellectual property communities and stakeholders on where Malaysia is today and where we should be going. Some of the topics being shared and discussed include:
- The National Innovation Policy (by UNIK from the Prime Minister’s office)
- Latest IP law developments
- Learning from USA and Japan on becoming an IP based nation
- Green Technology and IP
- Impact of the Madrid Protocol
- How to build a strong brand
- Competition law and IP
- Getting grants and investments for IP based companies
This is an important conference not to be missed by anyone interested or involved in innovation or IP. The early bird rates expire on 31 May 2011 and therefore interested participants need to sign up now.
