Pioneering intellectual property policy for the Salah Boubnider University of Constantine 3

December 14, 2021


Today, the Salah Boubnider University of Constantine 3 held a ceremony to mark the official adoption of its intellectual property (IP) policy.

Developed with the assistance of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the policy is a first for an Algerian university.

Professor Ahmed Bouras, Rector of the University, underlined, in his opening address, the importance of the event and the dividends that implementation of the policy would bring. Those dividends, in turn, would stimulate innovation and research.

The Senior Director of the IP for Innovators Department at WIPO, Mr. Roca Campaña, also delivered an opening statement, in which he reaffirmed that the Organization stood ready to assist the University in implementing its policy and to consolidate support for the network of Technology and Innovation Support Centers in Algeria.

The event’s program featured, thereafter, presentations on different aspects of IP, including one by the Director of the WIPO Algeria Office on IP and WIPO services.

The adoption of the policy has aroused considerable interest and been well received in the academic community.

Representatives of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research and the Ministry for the Knowledge Economy and Startups participated in the event, along with representatives of the National Office of Copyright and Related Rights of Algeria (ONDA), the Algerian National Industrial Property Rights Institute (INAPI), the Agency for the Utilization of Research Results and Technological Development (ANVREDET), several other universities and research centers and the private sector.

In the course of the event, an all-woman team of researchers from the University of Constantine 3 filed three patent applications with INAPI.

The other universities taking part expressed the desire to benefit from this experience by developing their own policies along similar lines.
