Intellectual Property Management (Government)

Intellectual Property Management (Government) (“IPMG”) is a department in IPOS that supports public agencies in the management of publicly-funded IP. As a Statutory Board and part of Government, we understand the challenges faced by fellow public agencies.

Our IP Strategists provide actionable solutions on a wide range of IP management issues, in line with the National IP Protocol. We will partner your agency in developing holistic IP policies and strategies, complete with a full suite of processes and tools aligned with agency objectives and Government best practices.
