Intellectual creativity and innovation is a continuous process. The IP law is a global phenomenon in the 21st century which gets enrichment from IP protection and recognition.
The North East region of India is the unexplored virgin territory in terms of IP driven research and policy endeavours of the Government, private sectors, NGOs, think tanks etc. be it at the National or the International level. NLU, Assam which is the lone premier law school at the heart of the seven North Eastern States can become the focal centre for IP related activities.
North East region is the hotspot of biological diversity and well known for its indigenous traditional knowledge.
Since the ministry of commerce has selected NLUJA Assam for establishing IPR chair, CARIP will act as a sister organisation and work in coordination with IPR chair.
