Embassy of Sweden in Dhaka has published an announcement online to invites Bangladeshi citizens interested in making a difference in the relevant field of the International Training Program (ITP) in Intellectual property.
The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) will provide scholarships for participants from Bangladesh, covering course fees, accommodation, air tickets, and meals. This training program is open for all relevant potential candidates. The program organizer in Sweden will select the final participants according to the character and subject of the course.
On Sida’s behalf, this “ITP 313b Intellectual Property for Least Developed Countries”, will be implemented by The Swedish Intellectual Property Office (PRV) in cooperation with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, organizers will offer this program in a virtual setting if traveling is still not feasible. The training will be held on November 15 – December 4, 2020, with a follow-up on June 13-18, 2021.
The training program will be conducted in English. Therefore, there is a strict language requirement. ITP targets stakeholders involved in important reform processes at the local or national level. The participants should hold a position in their home organizations with a mandate to manage significant change processes. Sida offers ITP to organizations of strategic importance to the economic, social, and environmental development of partner countries.
Sida is interested in encouraging women to participate in the programs. Applications of female candidates are particularly welcome. However, this invitation does not guarantee acceptance of the application. A soft copy of the signed and scanned application along with supporting documents should be submitted to The Swedish Intellectual Property Office (PRV) by e-mail: [email protected] no later than 01st of September, 2020.
