LEAP IP Forward for Health Care Professionals
Apr 12 @ 9:00 am – 4:30 pm

LEAP IP Forward >> Masterclass for Health Care Professionals | APRIL 12, 2021

a training program specifically targeted to health care professionals who would like to increase their understanding on key topics on intellectual property (IP) such as patents, trademarks, copyright, and other IP-related matters such as IP enforcement and contemporary issues related to healthcare and IP.

IP is an essential component of every country’s development and is very relevant across different
sectors (business, arts, culture, education, agriculture, health). However, not all health care professionals (doctors, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, medical technologists, radiologic technologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, and respiratory therapists) are well-versed in the role of IP in the healthcare sector and how it can contribute to the development and public health. Therefore, it is important to capacitate health care professionals on the different fields of IP and its importance in public health, particularly in the ongoing pandemic.

A more IP- conscious society will impact the economic, socio-cultural, and educational development of the society.
