Title: Validation of the CSIR Institutional IP Policy, Implementation Strategy and Roadmap
Description: BACKGROUND In January 2016, the Republic of Ghana launched its National Intellectual Property Policy aimed at providing a framework to enable the country maximize the tools of the IP system as part of its national development goals. The adoption of the Policy was as a result of recommendations emanating from an Intellectual Property Development Plan (IPDP) elaborated within the framework of WIPO Technical Assistance in 2008. In the context of the implementation of the IPDP, capacity building workshops and seminars organized by the Regional Bureau for Africa, based on the request of the country, specifically targeting the nation’s universities and research and development (R &D) institutions, with a view to providing a better understanding of the importance of developing Institutional IP policies, came up with several conclusions and recommendations, primary amongst them, the need to elaborate IP policies within these institutions.
