The summer school was jointly organized by the WIPO Academy and the National Institute of Intellectual Property of Kazakhstan (Qazpatent) to give young professionals and university students an opportunity to learn more about IP from the perspective of IP office staff, WIPO officials, business experts, practicing lawyers, and patent attorneys.

I want to express my gratitude for the opportunity to take part in this amazing program, which lasted two weeks. This experience will be useful in my work, since I work at the IITU Innovation Center at International IT University. We work with startups and the importance of understanding patents is great. The experience gained in patenting and intellectual property will be implemented in our practice.
