ABU DHABI, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News / WAM - 12th Sep, 2018) The Emirates Intellectual Property Association, EIPA, has signed a strategic Memorandum of Understanding with the Arab Women's Council – Arab Organisation for Social Responsibility to help reinforce cooperative frameworks across various fields related to Intellectual Property, IP.

The new partnership demonstrates EIPA's continuing efforts to provide the necessary support needed in further promoting a culture of IP and increasing individual awareness on the important role that IP plays. It also fosters EIPA's culture and developing the means to protect it, which is a pillar of comprehensive development and a key driver in the efforts to position the UAE as one of the world's leading countries.

The MoU was signed by Dr. Abdul Quddoos A.R. Al Obaidli, Assistant Commander for Excellence and Pioneering and Chairman of EIPA; and Lina Daghlawi Moukarzel, President of the Arab Women's Council – Arab Organisation for Social Responsibility.

"We are proud to have signed this strategic new MoU, which complements our understanding of the important role that women today play in our society and the achievements that they have achieved across various international and local fields," said Alobaidli.

"Therefore, we must provide Arab women with the essential knowledge needed to enable them to perform their social role to the fullest. There is no doubt that intellectual property is an essential part of this knowledge as it is today a vital tool for advancing economic growth and social well-being.

In this context, with the growing proportion of women's representation and the emergence of active women leaders, there is a need to increase the awareness of individuals in the fields of intellectual property and to promote access to knowledge in this field."

The two parties agreed to exchange studies and research aimed at spreading a culture of IP, developing awareness methods in this field, drafting and implementing related legal legislation and exchanging knowledge in the same field through hosting seminars and lectures.
