Technology Information Services : 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. This scenario 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 and knowledge 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 like organizing IP and Patent Awareness Seminars and providing Patent Information Services.

PASTIC provides Information and Guidance in the following domains:

  • The Patent System in Pakistan
  • Criteria for Patenting an Invention
  • Filling and Filing of Patent Applications

The Service is available to researchers and inventors working at R&D Organizations, Industries, Universities, and Professional/ Vocational Colleges, etc.
