On the 26th April we celebrate World Intellectual Property (IP) Day, to promote the role that IP rights play in encouraging innovation and creativity. Across the globe, young people are stepping up to innovation challenges, using their energy and ingenuity, their curiosity and creativity to steer a course towards a better future. The World IP Day 2022 campaign theme, ‘IP and Youth: Innovating for a Better Future’ celebrates the huge potential of young people to innovate and drive change for a brighter future. Young innovators hold the potential to find new and better solutions that support the transition to a sustainable future. The youth of today are the inventors, creators and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

IP rights and sustainable development remains an enduring challenge, especially as the ongoing digital transformation gathers pace, throwing up new opportunities and challenges and yielding an ever-expanding influence on our daily lives. At FB Rice, our key purpose is to provide the expertise and support to eliminate these challenges, and bring these innovations to life. If you'd like advice on commercialising your innovations, contact us.
