As technical change reshapes the world economy, intellectual property (IP) has grown in importance and taken on a central economic role. The increasing globalization of economic affairs and the increased knowledge intensity of economic activities have lead to the emergence of knowledge economy. Increasingly knowledge based economies, the protection of intellectual property is important for promoting innovation and creativity, developing employment, and improving competitiveness.Importance of obtaining IPRs and enforcing them have caught on quickly with the Indians, in recent years. Indian IP offices have also undergone some major up-gradation in terms of infrastructure, human resources, computerization of IP offices, databases and websites among others.
It is felt that academic institutions will continue to play an important role in facilitating skilled human resource to industries, government institutions, academia and R&D. ASSOCHAM considers the optimization of protection and management of IPRs and timeliness to be amongst the priority goals for improvement of the Indian Eco System. In this context, it is extremely important for us to have well trained future generation who understand that each of their decisions could benefit or harm society, industry, economy etc.
