About the programme
Maharashtra National Law University, Mumbai is organising a Faculty Development Programme on IPR and Academic Integrity on 26th April 2019.
In recent years, Intellectual property rights (IPR) management has become increasingly important, both for industry and for research institutes/universities. The main categories of Intellectual property rights include: patents, copyright, trademarks, GI, design rights etc.
IPR provides an incentive for creativity and the disclosure of information and plays a significant role in encouraging innovations in the form of product/process development leading to technical advancement.
In view of the opportunities IPR provides in the form of protection and innovation management, it has become an increasingly important facet to the success and longevity of any organization/Institute and also for the economic growth of the country.
The present programme is intended for faculty of educational institutes to provide quality training and research, develop teaching capacity and also to help in the process of successful creation and utilization of IPR.
This programme, in turn, helps the faculty to disseminate the information to educate and empower the youth who are an inevitable asset of our nation.
