TIPO to Mark 2021 World Intellectual Property Day With IPR Symposium for SMEs
April 26 is World Intellectual Property Day. Since 2001, countries all over the world have been marking this day by organizing special events around a general theme set by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The events are aimed at raising awareness of how IPR can drive innovation and support creativity. WIPO's theme for 2021 is "IP & SMEs: Taking your ideas to market."

In celebration, TIPO is teaming up with the Small and Medium Enterprise Administration (SMEA) to organize a symposium entitled "Intellectual Property Rights and SMEs: When Creativity Enters the Market, Dreams are Realized." Small and medium-sized enterprises from all over Taiwan will be invited to take part in the symposium on April 26, where they will have the opportunity to discuss a variety of issues pertaining to intellectual property rights, i.e., patents, trademarks, copyright, and trade secrets. The SMEA has also asked industry experts to give talks on how SMEs can enter a market and thrive. TIPO hopes that, through the symposium, SMEs will gain a better understanding of intellectual property rights, allowing them to boost their competitiveness.

This event will also be live-streamed (in Chinese) via Youtube on April 26 at 1:30 p.m.
