The consultation-workshop had produced another batch of IP literate students and faculty who can make their own patent search, draft specifications and claims for their research projects to ensure the novelty of their projects. With this training, it is hoped that more projects will go the hands of IPOPHL examiners for evaluation and eventually find their way into the market.
