The main objective of the seminar is to promote ARIPO as a regional hub for the development and promotion of the Intellectual Property (IP) system on the African continent. The first seminar will focus on the protection and promotion of patents, utility models, industrial designs, trademarks and computer software whereas the second seminar on the protection and utilization of traditional knowledge, genetic resources and expressions of folklore.
