Patent Information Service
Most researchers in the country lack awareness about the Patent System and its benefit to the individuals as well as the Society and Economy. The situation needs to be improved through various promotional activities and efforts. The foremost in this endeavor is to create awareness amongst the Scientific Community about the benefits of Inventions and Patents so that research is oriented towards obtaining Patents. Moreover, they should be informed as to how to get their Inventions / Research Patented, since the level of awareness regarding filing of Patents is also very low.
Keeping this in view and to prepare the country for K-Economy, PASTIC has taken initiatives to encourage innovation and promotion of R&D in the public and private sector organizations The newly launched Patent Information Services are focused on providing advice on Technical and
Financial matters and guiding the Researchers / Inventers in filing their applications for Patents and obtaining protection for their inventions and research.
