South Asian Intellectual Property Knowledge Network
The Patent Informatics Division project “Information Driven Innovation in South Asian Association of Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Countries for Knowledge Development and Capacity Building” has a dual role of providing patent informatics services and capacity building in SAARC countries by offering short term training programs. Under the purview of the project the website “South Asian Intellectual Property Knowledge Network” (SAIPKN) has been started to act as a platform to provide patent informatics services, and to promote capacity building by offering e-learning opportunities on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR). The informatics services offered through the website are prior art search services and patent landscape analysis. Through the e-learning module of the website users can access study materials on IPR.
