After successfully launching the country’s first ever Intellectual Property (IP) Valuation Manual in the first quarter of 2020, the Technology Application and Promotion Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-TAPI) have rolled out copies of the book to its regional, provincial offices, research and development institutes, councils, and service agencies as well.

Through the Invention Development Division of DOST-TAPI, the IP Valuation Manual has been distributed to partner agencies to ensure that the country’s public S&T servants will be equipped with the latest methodologies in the said technical field. Specifically, the book intends to comprehensively communicate and educate scientists, inventors and researchers of established protocols and procedures that can be used to assess the potential financial value of an invention’s intangible IP asset such as patent, utility model, industrial design, copyright, and trademark.
