Technology and Innovation Support Center (TISC)

INTRODUCTION

Technology and Innovation Support Centers (TISCs) are designed by World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) to provide innovators in developing countries with access to locally based, high quality technology information services and other related services. TISC office was established at Fatima Jinnah Women University on January 28, 2019 with collaboration of World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Switzerland, Higher Education Commission (HEC) Pakistan and Intellectual Property Organization (IPO) Pakistan under Office of Research Innovation and Commercialization (ORIC).

OBJECTIVE

Primary objective of TISC network is to promote the use of patent information among the researchers, entrepreneurs, IP mangers, attorneys, government officials and policy makers by making national and international patent database accessible to them. These centers will also act as one stop shop for IP related services. This will help to reduce the technical and scientific knowledge gap between developing and least-developed WIPO member countries.
