Valuation Training

To equip more researchers and technology transfer officers in efficiently advancing relevant technologies, the Technology Application and Promotion Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-TAPI) conducted the Intellectual Property (IP) Valuation Writeshop-Training on 16-17 January 2020 at the PCIEERD Conference Room, Science Heritage Building, DOST Compound, Bicutan Taguig City.

The two-day writeshop-training was attended by around 30 DOST Research and Development Institute (RDI) project leaders, researchers, and technology licensing officers of the technologies to be submitted for DOST-TAPI’s IP valuation service, including the team members of the Technology Transfer Internship Program (TTIP).

“We hope that this event capacitates and upgrades the market research capabilities of each participant for future applications,” said DOST-TAPI Director Edgar I. Garcia.

Atty. Anne Mariae Celeste V. Jumadla, a consummate IP lawyer, accomplished patent agent, and owner of RevolPMente Innovation Management Services, served as the resource speaker.

“IP overlaps technology and innovation; there are times when a technology that is not particularly new can start a successful business,” she said during her talk.

Divided into five sessions, the writeshop-training discussed the fundamentals of market research, data, trends, and analysis.

“We are focused on reinforcing and providing IP rights assistance as we continuously support the idea that IP protection is a crucial preliminary step in successful technology transfer and commercialization, added Garcia.
