On 8 November 2019, the NUS Intellectual Property Students’ Association had a meeting at the World Intellectual Property Organization (“WIPO”) Singapore Office to discuss potential collaborations to raise awareness of intellectual property (“IP”) rights!
WIPO was created in 1967 to “lead the development of a balanced and effective international IP system that enables innovation and creativity for the benefit of all”. With its current state membership at 192, WIPO provides member states access to the Patent Cooperation Treaty, the Madrid Protocol, its International Alternative Dispute Resolution services, and inter alia, the Hague System.
The WIPO Singapore Office seeks to promote the benefits and effective use of WIPO services to potential users in the ASEAN region. Keep a lookout for news of our upcoming collaboration!
