Current Engagements:

In view of the significance of IP related issues to Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and the fact that none of the publications pertaining to SMEs  by WIPO have yet been translated into the Turkish language, a commitment to undertake three particular publications has been deemed appropriate for a task that calls for accuracy, reliability and responsibility. In selecting the publications, existing resources and the potential for widespread dissemination of the findings resulting from the completed translations have been instrumental. 

IP Coordinator, with the assent and under the requisite authority granted by the Chair of the Department of Management has submitted a formal proposal and request to obtain the requisite rights to undertake the translation and/or customisation of the following IP publications by the SMEs Division of WIPO:    

  • "Making a Mark: An Introduction to Trademarks for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises"
  • "Inventing the Future: An Introduction to Patents for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises"
  • "AStitch in Time: Smart Useof IP by TextileCompanies"

Projected Commitments:

Courses shall be offered, in the academic year of 2008-2009, within the curricula of the Department of Management, both at undergraduate and postgraduate level by IP Coordinator in “Legal Aspects of Intellectual Property Management” to the university student body irrespective of the degree for which they are registered.
