CLDP Leads Workshop on Technology Led Economic Development in Bahrain

On September 11, CLDP led a workshop on Technology Led Economic Development in coordination with Tamkeen Enterprises, Bahrain SME Society, the Ministry of Industry and Commerce (MOIC), American Chamber of Commerce, and Bahrain's Economic Development Board. CLDP expert Tim Wittig a commercialization advisor and IP attorney, discussed the importance of business clusters and technology innovation centers at universities, as well as strengthening IP regimes to promote entrepreneurship.  

The program included a panel discussion where participants discussed building public awareness on IPR issues with the universities and private sector. After the workshop, CLDP had site visits to Bahrain Polytechnic University to discuss the importance and need for a technology transfer office and MOIC’s patent and trademark office to discuss raising awareness on IP registration and development. By strengthening Bahrain’s IP regime, CLDP is helping to create a better businesses-enabling environment for U.S. companies.
