The Department of Intellectual Property (DoIP) has initiated an engagement process with the Korean Invention Promotion Association (KIPA) to take part in the 2019 IP Sharing Project. The project consists of “Appropriate Technology Development” project (AT) and “One Village One Brand” project (OVOB) and is a part of the Official Development Assistance (ODA) programme of the Korean government. The KIPA has shortlisted DoIP’s six of the ten proposals for further scrutiny and selection of the two areas through an onsite visit and further discussion.
