The Iowa State University Research Foundation (ISURF) and the Office of Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer (OIPTT) are hosting a World Intellectual Property Day celebration on Friday April 26.

Established by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), World Intellectual Property Day seeks to raise awareness of how patents, copyright, trademarks and design impact daily life. The Iowa State celebration will be held on the Parks Library lawn from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Important innovations developed by Iowa State researchers including a sampling of products developed with ISU inventions will be highlighted. Those stopping by will also get a chance to meet Iowa State faculty who are an important part of ISU’s intellectual property engine.
