The training courses will last until September 29, providing participants with knowledge and skills on negotiating and drafting technology transfer contracts, assessing prices of intellectual assets, and making policies related to technology transfer.

Meanwhile, the conference is scheduled to take place in the city on September 25-26, and a similar conference will be organised in Hanoi on September 28-29. During these events, WIPO officials will introduce the “Hub and Spoke” Structure and officially select units to participate in the project.



At present, the National Office of Intellectual Property of Vietnam is connecting a network of 30 Technology and Innovation Support Centres (TISC) at universities and research institutes, of which 20 units have registered to join the project aided by WIPO.

The Ministry of Science and Technology is coordinating with relevant ministries and agencies in building a national intellectual property strategy in order to improve the country’s IP system that facilitates creativity, attract investment and boost technology transfer and popularisation.
