With the launch of this platform, the first distance learning course “How to Protect Intellectual Property Rights in the Republic of Moldova” is being launched. It provides an overview of the fundamental principles of intellectual property law and is indispensable for conducting more advanced courses in this specific field.

The course contains several modules:

  • Introduction to Intellectual Property;
  • Patents;
  • Trademarks;
  • Industrial designs;
  • Copyright and related rights.

Each module is accompanied by a self-evaluation tool to help participants evaluate their level of knowledge and the progress achieved, as well as the ability to apply them. The course also contains a final test that allows the assessment of the knowledge gained throughout the course. In case of successful completion of all course modules, the participant will obtain a confirmatory certificate.

Both the e-learning platform and the launched distance learning course aim to improve and modernize the training process in the field of IP, promoting and disseminating information on the protection of intellectual property in the Republic of Moldova.

With the launch of these tools, learning in the IP field will be not only useful but also accessible, any interested person will be able to view and go through the training course free of charge. In the future, further distance learning courses in the field of IP will be developed.

The use by AGEPI of new technologies and means of information in promoting the field of intellectual property provides new learning opportunities, creating the necessary support for skills development and the acquisition of new knowledge, as well as increasing the level of culture in the given field.
