In 2009 Rospatent proposed a project “Enhancing of APEC Capacity Building for Intellectual Property Protection and Utilization: Training for Trainers” (CTI 22/2010) for implementation within APEC. The project received wide support in APEC Intellectual Property Rights Experts’ Group (IPEG) and was approved by APEC Budget and Management Committee in August 2010.
Co-sponsors of the project are People’s Republic of China, Republic of Korea, Peru, United States and Viet Nam.
Project timeline: October 2010 – September 2011.
The project is aimed to the economic integration of APEC economies by enhancing of APEC capacity building for intellectual property protection and utilization.
The key objectives of the project are:
1) to examine in cooperation with the IPEG experts and compare the existing effective practices of capacity building and IP training programs in APEC economies;
2) to develop an appropriate training for trainers course and guidelines on the best practices of training of APEC economies’ officials;
3) to organize a special training for trainers where the trainers from APEC economies will receive information on best practices and will have an opportunity:
- to coordinate their training programs with each other, thus reducing redundant training, and improving its effectiveness,
- to develop their own training programs;
4) to assist the trainers from APEC member economies in developing their own training programs.
The main beneficiaries of the project are:
- professors and teachers delivering specific IP training to government officials in APEC economies
- government officials of APEC economies, including the policymakers in the IP sphere in APEC economies, employees of the IP-offices and law enforcement bodies.
