Intellectual Property Rights Cell (IPR Cell)

Apply Now


The Intellectual Property Rights Cell (IPR Cell) at The Assam Kaziranga University was established in 2023 in collaboration with the Assam Science Technology and Environment Council (ASTEC). The primary objective was to facilitate human resource development within the university and the local community by providing comprehensive support in managing Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).

Supported by ASTEC, the IPR Cell-KU is dedicated to raising awareness and providing guidance to university members, including students, as well as faculty and students of nearby colleges, and the villages in the surrounding area. Since its inception, the cell has been actively engaged in educating individuals about various forms of intellectual property rights, including patents, copyrights, designs, trademarks, indigenous technical knowledge, geographical indications, and plant varieties.
