Developing the potential of Life… for Life!

(bio means life in Greek)!

When effectively and ethically managed, intellectual property (IP) can be a powerful tool: IP can both accelerate the development of lifesaving, poverty-alleviating innovations and facilitate access for those living in the developing world. The IP Handbook constitutes an authoritative, comprehensive, and practical reference on IP management and best practices. The resource is invaluable for anyone seeking to use IP strategically to enhance economic growth and equitably distribute innovative technologies.
