The Iowa State University Research Foundation (ISURF) and the Office of Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer (OIPTT) are hosting a World Intellectual Property Day celebration on Friday April 26. Established by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), World Intellectual Property Day seeks to raise awareness of how patents, copyright, trademarks and design impact daily life.
The ISU celebration will be held on the Parks Library lawn from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The free event highlights important innovations developed by Iowa State researchers and includes a sampling of food products developed with ISU inventions. Those stopping by will also get a chance to meet ISU faculty who are an important part of ISU’s intellectual property engine.
