Effectual Knowledge Services, a leading firm in the IP space, today announced a first of its kind initiative of conducting a workshop on Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) at JSS Academy of Technical Education on 15th April, 2016. The workshop was targeted at B.Tech and M.Tech students who were about to start their career in the Intellectual property space. The workshop was attended by more than 80 students who are trying to make a mark in the IP industry.
The session was led by Karan Bhutani (Assistant Manager, Marketing) and Jatinder Batra (Assistant Manager, Operations). The intent of the session was to increase the awareness about the Intellectual Property Rights among the students and the slew of measures taken by the government in the ‘Start-up India, Stand Up India’ initiative. Though the session was interactive but IPR is yet to find a place in the teaching curriculum of school and universities, most of which are focused on the conventional method of teaching as compared to western counterparts where universities now impart IPR training. These kinds of workshops helped students to know more about the market trends, industry requirement’s, and gain practical knowledge which increases possibilities of employment. These workshops also help students to make them aware about the growth opportunities in the IP space both in terms of career and professional development.
The session was targeted toward introducing students to IP laws in India and procedure involved in filing and grant of patents. The session topics included overview of IPR, types of IPR, IP laws, filing a patent, and grant of patent, etc. At Effectual Services, we owe much of our success to our best-in-class talent, so we have a vested interest in inspiring students to discover their potential to be innovators and leaders in the IP space,” said Amit Aggarwal, Co-founder, Effectual Knowledge Services. We are also expanding the program into new colleges in order to extend the benefits of the program to as many students as we can.
“This kind of IPR session and initiative echoes our mandate to teach students and helps foster an early interest in the IP space, which is essential for motivating students to consider a degree and occupation down the road,” said Amit Goel (Co-founder, Effectual Knowledge Services).
