As Singapore embarks on our vision to be a Smart Nation, driven by technology and a knowledge based economy, Intellectual Property (IP) has become increasingly important and crucial.
Government agencies are major procurers and users of Intellectual Property. Civil Servants and Public Officers are increasing involved in the creation and management of Intellectual Property. The Instruction Manual and certain Finance Circular Minutes set out policy guidelines regarding the need to avoid infringing copyright, and the management of IP in areas such as procurement, funding of R&D and the secondment of officers.
This course is only open to Singapore Civil Servants and Public Officers.
