We are sharing the success story of one of our alumni Sandhya. She completed her Masters in Biotechnology from GGSIPU. Her interest was in IPR so she joined the Job-oriented Patent Analyst Training Program (JOPAT) of IIPTA.
In this 3-months JOPAT program of IIPTA, she learned about laws associated with trademarks, copyrights, and patents in India and the U.S. and how they are helpful in the IPR industry.
Also, he learned about patent searching in databases. Indian Patent Office (IPO), United States Patents and Trademarks (USPTO), European Patent Office (EPO), Google Patents and World Intellectual property Organization (WIPO). She also mentioned how live classes helped her grasp the knowledge of IPR. She expressed how the JOPAT program IIPTA helped her to learn practical knowledge in the domain of IPR and also in personality development.
The term IPR denotes intellectual property rights which means the rights conferred by the creator/owner upon their innovations. They seek to protect the interests of the creators by rewarding their mental labour and allowing them to retain property rights over their creations. The creators and inventors are thus entitled to benefit from their creations.
She joined the program for learning and was very much impressed with the teaching method, Her excellent communication and interpersonal traits of problem-solving helped her to get selected for the internship opportunity offered by IIPTA.
