05/14/2020

The State Agency on Intellectual Property (AGEPI) invites anyone interested to follow the free online training course “How to Protect Intellectual Property Rights in the Republic of Moldova”. This course provides an overview of the fundamental principles of intellectual property (IP) right and their role for business development and implementation of scientific and socio-cultural projects.

The course contains several modules:

  • Introduction to Intellectual Property;
  • Patents;
  • Trademarks;
  • Industrial designs;
  • Copyright and Related Rights.

Each module is accompanied by a self-assessment tool, which aims to help participants assess their level of knowledge and progress attained, as well as the ability to apply it. The course also contains a final test that allows the evaluation of the knowledge acquired throughout the course. In case of successful completion of all course modules, the participant will obtain a certificate attesting the completion of the course.

The distance learning course is hosted by the e-Learning platform, which also contains a collection of publications/literature in the field of IP. The purpose of this tool is to improve and modernize the training process in the field of IP, as well as to promote and disseminate the information on intellectual property protection in the Republic of Moldova.

The use by AGEPI of new technologies and means of information in promoting intellectual property, offers new learning opportunities, creating the necessary support for developing skills and gaining new knowledge, as well as increasing the level of culture in the given field. In the future, other distance learning courses in the field of IP will be developed.

The e-Learning platform is accessible at http://elearning.agepi.gov.md.

The platform was developed with the support of European experts within the framework of the EU Assistance Project “Support to Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights in the Republic of Moldova". While building up the platform, the best distance learning practices existing in the EU countries were consulted, as well as the rich training practice existing in the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
