West Bank: CLDP meets with West Bank Law Schools to support IP Curriculum development

On October 26, 2017, CLDP hosted a roundtable with Law Schools from prominent academic institutions in the West Bank to discuss potential contributions that academia influenced IP can have on the local economy.  Currently, Law School offer IP as an elective subject.  However, the concept of technology transfer is still very preliminary.  While a few technology offices are opening in the West Bank, they are far from having the essential institutional capacity to generate IP.  Further engagement with the government would be key to building the support needed to develop University Technology Transfer Offices.
