Hosted by Qatar Petrochemical Company (QAPCO), GPCA is organizing its 7th Intellectual Property (IP) Awareness Workshop on 24-25 May in the Plaza Doha by Anantara, Doha, Qatar, under the theme ‘Transitioning from a Technology Licensee to a Technology Leader’.

After a series of successful past editions in Riyadh, Abu Dhabi, Al-Khobar, Dubai, Kuwait, Oman, and Bahrain, this year’s edition is arriving in Doha for the first time.

In this two-day workshop, industry experts will convey a comprehensive understanding of IP and its importance, as well as how best to monetize and create the most value for your technology assets.

The GCC countries aspire to become a global technology hub by transforming local institutions from technology licensees to technology leaders and licensors.

It requires a strategic approach, a solid infrastructure, and a joint effort between companies, universities, and government institutions to achieve the goal.

The region is seeing significant growth and investments in the development and commercialization of technology, know-how, and IP from GCC governments, local and foreign investors.

Despite these developments and investments which will help the region compete with its global counterparts, it is becoming more important than ever for the regional industry to invest in and evolve from its current licensing-in business models to develop an unrivalled competitive edge.
