From July 4 to 7, I attended a workshop for WIPO-Master program students in Beijing organized by the China Intellectual Property Training Center. The three days I spent there were insightful and enjoyable, allowing me to learn a lot and meet new friends.The workshop featured some fascinating visits that complemented the lessons. I got a first-hand look at the patent examination offices, gaining valuable insight into China's patent system. I also visited the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA), giving me a better understanding of intellectual property management in China.The lectures and presentations from IP professionals further expanded my knowledge on IP-related topics. I was able to interact and network with the other WIPO-Master students and instructors, many of whom have become acquaintances.The experience of attending the workshop in the historical city of Beijing was a memorable one. I returned home with a broader perspective on China's thriving IP sector and the invaluable skills I acquired will benefit my career going forward. It was a great opportunity to be part of the WIPO-Master program and I look forward to more such learning experiences in the future.
As a Master student at the Shanghai International College of Intellectual Property, I had the opportunity to visit Beijing and explore the city's rich cultural and intellectual property landscape. One of the highlights of my trip was visiting the Beijing Court of IP and the CNIPA, where I attended lectures with experts and gained a deeper understanding of the advanced state of intellectual property protection in China.The experience was invaluable not only for my personal growth but also for promoting the exchange between Brazil and China and for furthering my career as a professional in the field of intellectual property. In just four days, I was able to gain a comprehensive understanding of the workings of China's judicial and administrative systems for intellectual property protection.I also had the opportunity to experience Chinese culture firsthand, from sampling the traditional hot pot in Beijing to visiting the iconic Great Wall, a testament to the country's rich history and culture. Overall, the days in Beijing were a perfect blend of education and cultural immersion, and the trip will undoubtedly remain a cherished memory for years to come.
