Stan Kowalski Shares His Innovation Expertise in South Africa

Dr. Stan Kowalski, Director of UNH Law's International Technology Transfer Institute (ITTI) just returned from Pretoria, South Africa, where he was invited to participate in the WIPO Workshop on Access to Technology for Innovation – Patent Search Strategies and Techniques, a program jointly organized by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the Innovation Hub of South Africa (TIH) and the National Intellectual Property Management Office of South Africa (NIPMO).

Dr. Kowalski delivered a series of lectures on technology transfer, patent database searching, patent legal status and innovation management for development. He also met with South African government officials and IP professionals from both South Africa and Zimbabwe.

While in South Africa, Dr. Kowalski continued to advance the ITTI global mandate through capacity building in IP management and technology transfer in developing countries. He also worked to forge linkages at the dynamic interface between global innovation access and IP education.
