Virtual training program

Virtual training program

The Directorate of Inventions and New Technologies (DIN) of Indecopi makes this initiative available to academic, research and business institutions throughout the country that will allow them to request the programming of free VIRTUAL TRAINING activities on patents and other topics intellectual property rights, which they consider to suit their own training needs and interests.

These trainings may be of two types:

1. Training without proof Indecopi:

Under this modality, the training could be composed of one or more independent sessions and for which Indecopi does not issue certificates of participation to the attendees for any reason (however, the requesting entity could deliver said certificates to the participants, depending on to their own criteria).

2. Indecopi training with constancy:

Under this modality, the training must consist of at least 3 sessions and the participants will take an online knowledge assessment at the end of the program. In this type of activity, participants will obtain a certificate from Indecopi (unless otherwise agreed with the requesting entity) as long as they obtain in the final evaluation a score greater than or equal to 12 out of 20 points and have attended at least 70% of the training sessions.

Virtual Course ‘Patents as valuable instruments for research, invention and technological innovation processes’.

Virtual Course ‘Patents as valuable instruments for research, invention and technological innovation processes’.

This course has been developed by the National Institute for the Defense of Competition and the Protection of Intellectual Property (Indecopi), in conjunction with the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia. 

Patents are part of the instruments of the intellectual property system. These act as vehicles that help facilitate and support research, invention and technological innovation activities by granting exclusivity rights.

Therefore, this course seeks to teach and develop in an introductory and basic way the general and comprehensive aspects related to the patent system, which must be known by any person who is directly or indirectly involved or is going to get involved with projects of research, invention, innovation or technological entrepreneurship.

The course has been structured in eight modules so that, at the end of the complete program, the student will be able to understand and apply extensively the characteristics, particularities, scope and opportunities that the patent system poses for activities creative development.

Access to the course can be done through

For any questions you have about it, you can write to patenta@indecopi.gob.pe.

For a New Coexistence: Peruvian society in times of COVID-19: scenarios, policy proposals and public action

This report is a first response to the initiative of the Ministry of Health (MINSA) to establish a thematic group of Social Sciences made up of expert professionals and academics, whose task is to think about the present hour from the contribution that the social sciences can make to build a national agenda to face the current health crisis.

In this sense, the report offers a quick diagnosis and recommendations for policy and public action to face the changing scenarios that will continue to change over the coming months and perhaps years. It is about addressing complex issues about social processes that are in full development and about which our report seeks to formulate some preliminary answers.
