TUNIS - The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the National Standardization and Intellectual Property Institute (INNORPI), signed on June 7, 2010, a cooperation agreement providing for the creation, in Tunisia, of a Copyrights Training Academy, according to TUNISIAONLINENEWS.

The Academy will ensure the training of trainers, jurists and experts in terms of Intellectual Property, researchers, students, industrialists, artists and related professions.

WIPO stressed readiness to support INNORPI’s plan to set up such an institution and to follow up its activities.

The agreement was signed at the end of a meeting held between Secretary of State in charge of Renewable Energies and Food Industries Abdelaziz Rassaa and WIPO’s Director-General Francis Gurry.

Rassaa stressed the need to ensure follow-up of co-operation work between the two sides and to jointly seek to help Tunisian industrialists make the most of the advantages of direct access to data for Tunisian enterprises.

From his part, Gurry said that Tunisia benefits of a regular and structured cooperation program, notably ruled by an outline cooperation agreement and regular implementation programs.

He notably underscored Tunisia’s dynamic role in terms of Intellectual Property in Africa and the Arab world.
