The Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines has converted its face-to-face LEAP IP seminars to a webinar format. This new mode of delivering IP awareness and education will enable anyone with internet access to participate in IPOPHL lectures without leaving the comforts and safety of their homes or offices.

This August, we are reintroducing the iLEAP IP x Inventor Assistance Program (IAP) Webinar* for inventors and technology developers. This webinar will tackle the basics of patent search and patent drafting which will be scheduled every other month. To maximize the session, only those who have been able to complete one iLEAP cycle and those who intend to file for a patent or utility model will be given slots to the webinar.

Registration is free but is limited to 100 slots.

Webinar participants who are able to meet the following criteria will be issued a Verified IPOPHL Certificate of Participation:

  1. Full 120-minute attendance to the webinar;
  2. Obtain at least 75% in the post-test; and
  3. Submission of the feedback form.

Language of Instruction: English and Filipino
