The IP Asset Management Course for Business Professionals Strikes Again

November 29, 2023

The WIPO Academy teamed up with the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO), the Korea Invention Promotion Association (KIPA), and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) to organize the 14th edition of the annual Advanced International Certificate Course on Intellectual Property (IP) Asset Management for Business Success (AICC).

The in-person phase of the course took place from November 6 to 9, 2023 in Seoul, Republic of Korea for the benefit of 38 IP professionals, entrepreneurs from micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), policymakers, and academics from 26 countries spanning five continents.

What did the AICC course cover?

The participants of the AICC are the top performing 10% of those who completed the pre-qualifying online phase, which included the IP Panorama 2.0 course, the Advanced Distance Learning Course on IP Management (DL-450), and an IP essay.

The four-day in-person course on IP Asset Management for Business Success enables participants to deepen their understanding and practical knowledge of IP capital and value chain management from IP experts, and collaborate with peers. The course covered core topics such as:

  • Innovation management: A value articulation heuristic;
  • Analysis of participant-sourced intellectual capital challenges;
  • Intellectual capital and value chain management;
  • Strategies, preparations, and planning for negotiating a license; and
  • Trade secrets.

"The online and face-to-face components of the AICC 2023 gave me a unique opportunity to delve into different forms of IP, and the need for a custom-made strategy of IP protection and management for different entities. The face-to-face component was effective and allowed me to implement the learning in form of workshop activities and discussion with other participants. I was always curious about the management aspect of a patent portfolio with other IPs of a business. Through this course, I have gained significant insight on how various IP protection can be levelled together to provide longer and efficient protection to an entity's IP, and how to effectively strategize the value of IP in licensing negotiations." – Pooja Bawari (India)

"The AICC unarguably ranks among the best short professional courses I have taken in recent times. The amount of knowledge I have gained from the interactions and the amazing network of individuals from diverse academic and professional backgrounds. The course is very practical in nature. Already, I have found myself applying the learnings in real life situations. For instance, after completing the DL-450, I was invited to train a group of researchers on how to manage their intellectual property assets at the Federal University of Technology Minna, Nigeria." – Abdul Abubakar Argungu (Nigeria)
