Title: WIPO Work Sharing Seminar – WIPO Sub-regional Workshop on the Improvement of Quality of Patent and Office Actions through Utilization of WIPO CASE System, ASPEC Task Force Meeting and the Community of Practice Meeting for patent examiners
Description: We refer to the approved Work Plan of Funds in Trust (FIT) / Japan Industrial Property (IP) for the fiscal year 2016-2017 (copy attached) which states that the Trust Funds will provide financial support to two workshops on the facilitation of World Intellectual Property Organization’s (WIPO) Centralized Access to Search and Examination (CASE) platform. The proposed Seminar is composed of three activities, namely WIPO CASE Utilization Workshop, ASEAN Patent Examination Co-operation (ASPEC) Task Force Meeting and the Community of Practice (CoP) Meeting for patent examiners. This week-long program was supported by the recent Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) Working Group on Intellectual Property Cooperation (AWGIPC) meeting that was held from November 22 to 24 2016, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The Seminar will be organized by WIPO in cooperation with the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) and with the assistance of the Japan Patent Office (JPO). The event will take place at the training facility of IPOS.
Theme of this Workshop was selected to make WIPO CASE system more integrated into business workflows at each ASEAN Industrial Property (IP) Office and to demonstrate on how efficiency and quality of patent could be enhanced through leveraging the technical platform and electronic means.
