OVCRD Kicks Off Campaign on Intellectual Property Protection in UP Diliman

Series of IP talks initially slated in College of Engineering on 18 Aug, 30 Sept

By Agnes May B. Bantigue and Karen N. Azupardo

Beginning the first semester of academic year 2014-2015, the Office of the Vice-Chancellor for Research and Development (OVCRD), through its Intellectual Property (IP) and Technology Transfer Team, is spearheading an IP Protection Awareness Campaign in the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman.

The IP and Technology Transfer Team will hold a series of talks for students and faculty beginning 18 August 2014 initially for the Department of Mining, Metallurgical, and Materials Engineering (DMMME). The Engineering Research and Development for Technology (ERDT) Consortium of the College of Engineering will also be holding an IP orientation session for faculty, students, and research, extension and professional staff (REPS) set on 30 September.

Innovation and research outputs play a central role in sustained social and economic development as proven by current global economic trends that have become increasingly knowledge-based. As national university mandated to serve as a research university by conducting and promoting R&D and disseminating knowledge, UP therefore can be among the key institutions that would propel the country to lead the ranks of knowledge-based economies.

Yet despite the valuable research and creative works in the University, there is very little knowledge about IP and IP protection among faculty, researchers, and students. Based on low number of invention and creation disclosures to the OVCRD every year, majority are unaware of the importance of obtaining IP Rights. Many are unaware that without IP protection, outputs are vulnerable to exploitation by other parties. Pharmaceutical companies can patent published research on a new medicine for themselves, or commercial firms can use photos uploaded on the web for their own economic gains.

IP Campaign poster main

The Campaign seeks to introduce faculty, researchers, and students to the idea of IP and the benefits of obtaining IP Rights. It also encourages the entire UP Diliman community to consult or seek assistance from the IP and Technology Transfer Team under the Technology Transfer Program of the OVCRD.

OVCRD believes that through the Campaign, constituents of the university will become more aware of their rights and proactively avail the free IP services provided by the Office. These services include IP registration, patent search and patent search training, market study and assistance in commercialization.

Started in 2007, the Technology Transfer Program is the main mechanism through which the University facilitates the protection and deployment of its research and creative outputs. The IP and Technology Transfer Team of OVCRD also assists researchers and creative professionals in the development, protection, licensing, patenting, and marketing and commercialization of their works.

To know more about the Campaign, please refer to Memorandum No. FRN 14-006 Intellectual Property Protection Awareness Campaign and to updates via Facebook at and @IPtechtrans_UPD on Twitter.

To request for a schedule of orientation in your department/office, contact Paul Natividad of the IP and Technology Transfer Team through telephone number 981-8500 loc. 8763 or e-mail address
