Every April 26, we celebrate World Intellectual Property Day. The event was established in 2000 by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) to raise awareness on patents, copyright, trademarks and designs. Each year, a message or theme is associated with the event. For 2017 the chosen theme is Innovation - Improving Lives.
In the spirit of the WIPO, we have created an essay contest in an effort to harness the energy, creativity and initiative of our members.
Essays must be 700 words or less offering an answer to:
What do you think should be the priorities for future innovation?
