Upcoming IP Toolkit for Academic Institutions

//Upcoming IP Toolkit for Academic Institutions

Steven Tan, ASTP-Proton Board, VP for Finance contributed to this Toolbox as independent advisor. 

WIPO is currently developing a new set of resources to support academic instructions in their use of intellectual property (IP) – the IP Toolkit for Academic Institutions – Connecting Academic Research with Economy and Society. 

The Toolkit represents a comprehensive set of documents and training support tools for:

  • those involved in drafting institutional IP policies;
  • technology managers; and
  • IP professionals engaged in asset management and knowledge transfer.

Assemblies preview

A presentation of a draft part of the Toolkit containing the “IP Commercialization Roadmap” took place during a side event to the Fifty-Seventh Series of Meetings of the Assemblies of the Member States of WIPO organized on October 3, 2017.

The full Toolkit will be available in early 2018.
