Kenya’s Patent and Trademark Office – KIPI – will hold its Open Day at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) on February 28, 2014 from 8:00am to 5:00pm.
The purpose of the Open Day is to increase public awareness on intellectual property through educating members of the publc on the importance of registration and protection of their patents, trade marks, industrial designs and utility models.
As many may know, KIPI is a state corporation mandated by law to:
1) Consider applications for and grant industrial property rights i.e. patents, trade marks, industrial designs and utility models
2) Screen tech transfer agreements and licenses
3) Provide to the public industrial property information for tech and economic development; and
4) Promote inventiveness and innovativeness in Kenya.
KIPI has organised this Open Day in partnership with other stakeholders and collaborators in the field of intellectual property who will also be exhibitors during the event. This will definitely provide a great opportunity for KIPI and other players in the IP arena to meet and interact with innovators and entrepreneurs as well as the public at large
