Empowering researchers in academic and research institution in Kenya

The Institute, in partnership with the African Regional Intellectual Property Organization (ARIPO) and University of Nairobi (UoN) hosted an Intellectual Property (IP) Seminar for Academic and Research Institutions in Kenya in Nairobi from 31st October, 2023 to 2nd November, 2023.
The Seminar, held at the UoN Towers, Nairobi, aimed at providing academic and research institutions in Kenya with a comprehensive understanding of IP laws and practices to encourage responsible and ethical innovation.
This way, it would contribute to the growth of a vibrant and ethically conscious research community in Kenya since IP plays a crucial role in fostering innovation and protecting the rights of creators and inventors.
