Intellectual Property is the term given to the productions of original intellectual or creative activity. India has
become a member of the global patent regime by signing TRIPS and recently the Madrid protocol but
awareness and proficiency of the subject is very less.
A huge sum of money is spent on R&D every year while the patents filed in India by locals are only 20% of the total filed patents. Despite efforts from government and industry, international companies and individuals continue to overshadow local inventors with regard to filing patent applications. Of the 43,000 applications filed for patents every year with the India Patent Office of the Controller General of Patents, Designs and Trademarks each year just 9,000 are from Indian individuals and companies.
On this backdrop, PHD Chamber in collaboration with University of Delhi, organizing National Conference on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) with special focus on patents to generate awareness about IPR and to provide a leading platform to the stakeholders for identifying a practical solutions for the problems concerning the creation, proprietorship and protection of intellectual property.
