Dignitaries' comments at IPTSE Awards

Mr Narendra Sabharwal, Chair IP Committee, FICCI said, “Innovation, research and creativity, supported by Intellectual property, form the core of a knowledge-based economy. In this context, India’s youth must increasingly appreciate the benefits of IPR in safeguarding their creations, the competitive edge that it provides, and its key role in nation-building. FICCI is happy to support the IPTSE Awards initiative, which is playing a front-end role in furthering this change at the formative stage of one’s career.”

Mr Sourabh Sachdeva, Director, IPTSE (A Venture of IPETHICON - An Educational Academy), said, “We are thankful to the government, FICCI, and our industry partners including Ericsson, who have been instrumental in the successful completion of yet another edition of this national IP examination. The past year has been challenging for everyone and it is telling of the growing interest in a subject like IP that students, start-ups, and young lawyers all came forward to participate in IPTSE 2021. The IPTSE Academy is committed to sustaining the momentum set by the examination and we will strive to build awareness around IPR and advocate its importance in building a tech-enabled future. We are positive that we will see more registrations for the 5th Edition of IPTSE - First of its kind IP Olympiad."
