National Workshop on Intellectual Property Protection for the Inventions Related to Agriculture and Animal Sciences

Oct 05-06, 2017 (Thursday-Friday)
Conference Hall, UVAS, Lahore

 

Intellectual property rights have become increasingly important in the modern era of scientific research. As the legal regime has been tightened and attitudes of funders, employers and researchers have changed, serious challenges are emerging to the free flow of ideas and information on which the scientific enterprise rests. It is important that individual scientists should be aware of their rights and to be convinced to use them in the public good.
In this context, the Office of Research, Innovation and Commercialization, University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Lahore in collaboration with Punjab Agriculture Research Board (PARB), is going to organize “National Workshop on Intellectual Property Protection for the Inventions Related to Agriculture and Animal Sciences” on 5th-6th October, 2017 at Conference Hall, UVAS, Lahore. The major objectives of this workshop are as follows:

  • To create awareness among agriculture, livestock sector researchers about the potential and necessity of innovation.
  • To stimulate applied research to enhance productivity of livestock and agriculture sector.
  • To foster closer linkages between ORICs of various public and private universities and Govt departments responsible for research and development in agriculture and livestock sector.
  • To impart practical and hands on training to the potential officials of ORIC and researchers in actual patent application/filing etc.
