Powering Change : Women In Innovation And Creativity


Applications are now open for the ACID female design champion to mark World Intellectual Property Day.

Every April 26, the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) celebrates World Intellectual Property Day to promote the role that intellectual property rights (designs, trademarks, copyright and patents) play in encouraging innovation and creativity. This year’s World IP Day celebrates the brilliance, ingenuity, curiosity and courage of the women who are driving change in our world and shaping our common future.
