The 3rd ASEAN IP Academy Working Group (IPAWG) Meeting was held via Video Conference on 24 February 2021. The Meeting was attended by representatives from all ASEAN member States and hosted by the ASEAN Secretariat.

 

At this third Working Group Meeting, the focal points from the ASEAN Member States had an active discussion on the technical set up to establish the virtual platform for the ASEAN IP Academy that will be eventually made accessible through the ASEAN IP Portal. The online platform is targeted to be launched before the end of 2021.

 

The meeting also discussed the Train-the-Trainers programme proposed by the various supporting Dialogue Partners and engaged directly with the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) as well as the Korea Invention Promotion Association (KIPA) through an online consultation session. Representatives from KIPO and KIPA shared on the various online learning content that has been developed through collaboration with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) as well as the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC).  This is the first engagement with a Dialogue Partner since the establishment of the IPAWG.
