About the Launch of The AJL Intellectual Property Help Desk

The Alma Jordan Library (AJL) in collaboration with the Office of Research Development and Knowledge Transfer (ORDKT), The UWI St Augustine Campus and the Intellectual Property Office of the Ministry of the Attorney General and Legal Affairs launched the Alma Jordan Library Intellectual Property Help Desk on July 31, 2018, at the AJL.

The objective of the Alma Jordan Library (AJL) Intellectual Property (IP) Help Desk is to enable the entire UWI community to have ease of access to education, information, training and advisory services in the field of Intellectual Property (IP). This intervention is strategic, and the initiative comes at an opportune time when the UWI, St. Augustine is placing greater emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship, and an increase in IP disclosure for inventions is envisaged.
