" The Intellectual Property Awareness workshop' at Witty International School Pawan Baug (2017-18).

                                                              Intellectual Property Awareness

Intellectual property Rights plays a vital role in enhancing the socio-economic prosperity of the country. Creativity and innovation are new drivers of world economy. With the increasing relevance of Intellectual Property in this era of globalisation, it is important to recognise the role which IPR (Intellectual Property Rights) play in the growth of the nation. Thus Witty International School, Pawan Baug, organised an Intellectual Property awareness workshop by Ms Ankita Jain from HUL – Hindustan Lever Limited for students of Grade AS and A Level.

The workshop was intended to cover various aspects of IPR like Patents, Copyrights, and Trademarks etc. Ms Ankita Jain asserted, “Understanding and protecting intellectual property is an important part of the process of bringing innovations to the market place. Intellectual property is a key concern of small business owners who can secure significant competitive advantages by exercising the rights they hold to their innovations. However, many individuals are often unaware of their rights and miss the opportunities they can provide especially young impressionable minds which can lead to serious repercussions later on.”

The young Wittians were highly enthused to know that the Intellectual Property is at the forefront of modern law and turning into one of the key components of any large company or organisation. Various case studies were discussed where students got firsthand knowledge about Intellectual Property issues.
The Principal, Mr Bijo Kurian commented, “In this global era it is imperative for our young minds to be innovative and but moreover be aware about their innovation protection rights too. We aim to enable our children to be enriched with these basic rights and laws.”
