CIC of Multimedia University had successfully organised an Innovation Awareness Programme entitled “Patent Search” on the 3rd of April 2018 @ the NTU Lab, Faculty of Engineering, Cyberjaya Campus.

This workshop was designed to impart knowledge on basic patent search skills to MMU academic members, specifically those from the Engineering and IT clusters. Participants were introduced to patent documents and taught how to conduct patent search, analyse prior arts and determine patentability of a particular invention.

The welcoming remarks were delivered by Dr. Olivia Tan Swee Leng, the Director of Collaboration and Innovation Centre. Dr. Olivia shared some insights on IP management and disseminated some information with regards to the Erasmus+ SPIRE, a project which is cco-funded by Erasmus+ of the European Union and in which MMU is a member.

The appointed trainer was none other than Mr. Muhammad Irfan Mustaqim Awang, the Head of Patent from Pro IP Sdn. Bhd. The speaker enriched the workshop with knowledge on patent, creativity and innovation, steering to lively exchange of ideas and views among the participants.

CIC would like to take this opportunity to express our profound gratitude to HCM for sponsoring this event. Our deep sense of gratitude also goes to the speaker and participants for their support and cooperation.
