Innovation drives economic growth and competitiveness. As countries embark on growing their economies through investments in technological development, the creation of new knowledge and protection of intellectual assets through Intellectual Property (IP) rights management and commercialisation of IP have become more important on the trade agenda. In tandem with the world embracing new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain, new requirements to support the innovation drive and better protect, manage and commercialise IP have also evolved.
Dr Sze Tiam Lin, Senior Director, IPI was invited by the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) to discuss these issues at the International Conference on IP in the New Technological Order held in Moscow on 1 and 2 February 2018. He also shared how enterprises leverage IPI’s open innovation platforms especially its online marketplace to accelerate their technological and product development. This creates win-win innovation partnerships to benefit enterprises and supports Singapore’s knowledge-driven economy.
Joining the conference and panel discussions were speakers from Australia, Chile, China, Egypt, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Morocco, Russia, Uganda and the UK who shared their countries’ perspectives on IP in the new technological era. The conference was organised by WIPO in cooperation with the Russian Federal Service for Intellectual Property (Rospatent) and the Skolkovo Foundation.
