Author Profile

In the present liberalisation and globalisation regimes and severe international competition in the world economies, the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and the corresponding systems focusing on patent, trademark, copyrights, etc. have assumed a vital role in enhancing the economic and social development and industrialisation, particularly in the developing countries. There is a sense of urgency in building up IPR systems in these developing countries to get maximum advantage from the IPR systems to effectively utilise innovative knowledge systems. At the same time, they are facing several challenges in evolving their own IPR systems, specifically to satisfy their public policy needs and socio-economic developmental goals. This requires the developing economies not only to be innovative, but also calls for increased cooperation for building up of strong IPR systems to face competition from the developed countries. <BR> The present publication is a follow up of an international Advanced Training Course on ‘Contemporary Management Strategies in Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) relevant to NAM and Other Developing Countries’ organised by the Centre for Science and Technology of the Non-Aligned and Other Developing Countries (NAM S&T Centre) at Manesar (Haryana), India during 16-20 July 2012 with sponsorship from the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India. The Training Course was attended by 36 participants from 25 countries, viz. Botswana, Cambodia, Egypt, Germany, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Malawi, Malaysia, Mexico, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Turkey, Uganda, Vietnam and Zimbabwe. <BR> This publication brought out by the NAM S&T Centre includes 26 research papers largely based on the presentations made at the Training Programme that touched upon various facets of IPR and its protection and issues related to TRIPS, as well as the Status Reports submitted by various country participants in this area. The volume also includes articles by some other experts on the subject. <BR> It is hoped that the book will serve as a useful reference material for the professionals working in the area of management of IPR and will help the developing countries in working out appropriate strategy, laws, policies and programmes for the protection and exploitation of new technologies and research results for their utilisation for the benefit of the society.
