About Event

Intellectual property is the outcome of human intellect. In other words we can say that intellectual property is an idea of mind that got transformed into physical form which is commercially viable and which improves the quality of life of humans. Although, there is an abundance of creative and innovative energies which are flowing in India still, much of the Intellectual Property (IP) created remains unprotected. The probable reasons could be lack of awareness, weak infrastructural support and perceptual mind blockages related to the complicated procedures associated with the Intellectual Property management. Looking into this, nationwide initiatives have been taken by policy makers to spread awareness about the significance of IPRs to promote innovation and Entrepreneurship among students and startups. IPR protection provides a tool for entrepreneurs to appropriate their returns from innovation by protecting and commercializing their IPRs. The prime purpose of this FDP is to provide basic knowledge of IPRs, its importance and implications in promoting entrepreneurship and start-up ecosystem among young Scholars, Small & Medium Enterprise (SME) and Grass root level innovators.
