EIPA leads unified efforts to promote adoption of best global IP practices in UAE

DUBAI, The Emirates Intellectual Property Association, EIPA, continues to lead in the ongoing unified efforts to promote the adoption of global best practices in intellectual property, IP.

The association’s commitment to promoting a culture of IP in the country is widely reflected in its continuing efforts to build solid foundations in the advancement of legal action across IP issues developing effective solutions to both current and emerging challenges in the implementation of IP protection laws that aims to protect patent holders, innovators, authors, investors and brands in line with the vision of the wise leadership to adopt a culture of innovation and achieve total sustainable development.

The EIPA remains steadfast in its commitment to promoting these global best practices, which include activities that can help increase awareness, including training programmes that can further qualify and certify UAE nationals on IP legislative matters. These programmes help in achieving the goals and objectives set forth in UAE Vision 2021, especially in creating a globally competitive economy that is based upon knowledge and innovation.

Dr. Abdul Quddoos Al Obaidli, Assistant Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police for Excellence and Pioneering, and Chairman of the EIPA, has emphasised the need for both the public and private sectors to work closely together, especially in the implementation and adoption of IP protection guidelines. He noted that the commitment of all concerned parties will play a key role in promoting a culture of IP and its many related segments. In the end, these efforts will also play an important role in the success of other related works, including attracting foreign investments, the move towards economic diversification, research and development, and science and technology.

Dr. Al Obaidli added, “We have a responsibility to train a new generation of qualified nationals who will be responsible to promote the UAE on the global IP protection map and lead the unified move to adopt global best IP practices, to be at the pace of emerging developments in IP, as well. The EIPA stands true to its commitment of raising society, particularly the youth’s awareness to contribute to the country’s overall development process. In line with this, the association has spearheaded valuable programmes that contain intellectual property knowledge and the means to address IP-related challenges, such as the Intellectual Property Leaders Programme, which will be launched in the next few months.”
