The Director General Mr. dos Santos today met officials from the University of Alicante, to discuss and exchange information on a potential cooperation agreement between ARIPO and the University.
 
The potential cooperation agreement will bring on the possibility of training students from ARIPO Office and its member states in the Master of Intellectual Property programme offered by the University of Alicante.
 
The Alicante University delegation was led by Mrs Esperanza Gallego, Professor of Commercial Law and Member of the Board of Directors of the Magister Lucentinus, whilst Mr. Charles Pundo, Head of Formality Examination accompanied the Director General.
 
The Magister Lucentinus is structured in separate modules, such as patents and technology transfer (I), trademarks, designs and competition (II), Copyright and Information technology rights  (III). Students can decide to attend one or several modules or the entire master program.
 
Since three years the Master has started offering a two days intensive course on Plant Variety Rights, which fall under the first module on patents.  
 
This programme has already been extended to the State Intellectual Property Office of China (SIPO), patent examiners attend the patents and technology transfer module of the Magister Lucentinus.
 
If concluded, this may result in the programme commencing under the agreement as early as the last quarter of 2017.
