Ontario Intellectual Property Advanced Curriculum Call for Proposals
On December 16, 2021, eCampusOntario released a call for proposals to develop an advanced curriculum course focused on intellectual property (IP) to support the implementation of the Government of Ontario’s Intellectual Property Action Plan.
A Key Component of Ontario’s IP Action Plan
The Ontario government is helping innovators understand the value of protecting their ideas by increasing access to digital IP education modules.
This made-for-Ontario curriculum will enable anyone considering commercialization opportunities to sharpen their ability to generate, protect, and leverage their IP in a global context. This curriculum will include examples from key sectors, identified by the province, and will enhance IP literacy and capacity across Ontario. It will support a breadth of learners including entrepreneurs, small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), researchers, and staff from innovation intermediaries such as Technology Transfer Offices, Applied Research Offices and Regional Innovation Centres.
This call for proposals seeks a multidisciplinary team of experts from within Ontario’s innovation ecosystem to work collaboratively to create a course that meets the learning objectives identified by the Ontario Expert Panel on Intellectual Property in their February 2020 report.
