The director, DIPUIL, Eng. B.K Kariuki has on 20.01.2022 sensitized fourth year students of Physics at IPIC on matters of intellectual property (IP). In his speech, he emphasized on the importance of utilizing the brain to creatively generate knowledge. Most students were not familiar with intellectual property concept hence, the director was keen to define the regimes of IP namely patents, copyright, trademark, industrial design, traditional knowledge and cultural expression
Most students were eager to learn on Patent information searches and how royalties are driven from IP. Whereas the world is seeking a permanent solution to covid-19, this lecture came in handy not only to promote IP uptake but also to use IP system to generate long term solutions. Subsequently, the students were encouraged to come up with novel ideas during their course that may end up generating income for them at an early stage.
