The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has launched a new executive course, “Intellectual Property and Genetic Resources in the Life Sciences,” and registration is open through May 16, 2021 on the WIPO eLearning Center website. The course is scheduled to run from May 31 to July 17, 2021.

A joint collaboration between the WIPO Academy and WIPO’s Traditional Knowledge Division, the course serves as an introduction to strategic IP rights management in the commercialization of genetic resources and data in various life sciences fields. It’s targeted to executives of life science enterprises and innovators who wish to learn more about how to incorporate IP strategies into their business models and bring life science innovations to the market. Policymakers working to facilitate the evolution of modern IP-based life science innovation ecosystems can also benefit from taking the course to learn about the latest trends and technologies in the field of genetic resources and data.

Space for the course is limited, and eligible applicants will be admitted on a first come, first served basis. To register, click here.
