Project-Based Training and Mentoring Program on IP for Women Entrepreneurs from Indigenous Peoples

"… The World Intellectual Property Organization is accepting applications from Indigenous women who may be working on a project related to intellectual property (IP). The deadline is August 30.
The “Project-Based Training and Mentoring Program on Intellectual Property for Women Entrepreneurs from Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities” is open to up to 20 women entrepreneurs – such as artisans, designers, traditional musicians and dancers, researchers, healers or small-scale farmers – who are planning or have already initiated a project based on traditional knowledge.
You can find more information about the Program and download the application form through this link: https://www.wipo.int/tk/en/women_entrepreneurs/ …"

Program structure

The Program has a practical approach and consists of two phases:

Training phase

The training phase will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, from November 11 to 15, 2019. Participants will:

  • acquire basic knowledge of the main principles, systems and tools of the IP system as they relate to TK and TCEs;
  • share and learn from each other’s experiences and meet potential partners that can provide support with the implementation of their projects;
  • further develop and implement TK or TCEs-based projects that have an IP component.

Mentoring phase

The mentoring phase will take place in 2020. During this phase, participants are expected to implement the project they have selected.

Mentors will be assigned to guide the implementation of the IP components of the projects.

Mentoring will principally take place through email and phone.

Requirements

Participation requirements

Participants are strongly encouraged to take the WIPO Primer on IP (DL-001) – a three-hour distance learning course offered free of charge by the WIPO Academy – or the WIPO General Course on IP (DL-101) prior to the training phase.

Language requirements

Candidates should be able to effectively communicate in English, French, Spanish or Russian. Simultaneous interpretation will be provided from and into these languages during the Geneva-based Workshop.

"…His first parish was in Rádeli Kóé/Fort Good Hope, which involved a long boat journey down the Dehcho into a new world.
Through all of the years, his attachment to the Dene peoples deepened. He celebrated the strength of their ancestral wisdom and committed himself to their desire for change.
René published As Long as This Land Shall Last as a contribution to the struggle over land claims; directed two films, I Was Born Here and Dene Nation; he also took thousands of photos, now housed in the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre in Yellowknife. The Museum uploaded this slideshow tribute in his memory this morning…."
