The forum was co-organized by the China National Intellectual  Property Administration, the World Intellectual Property Organization  (WIPO) and the Shanghai Municipal People's Government.

According to officials, the hub will work to attract global quality  resources in IP creation, protection, application and transaction to  support technological innovation and economic development.

The forum also saw seven Shanghai-based enterprises and institutions  from multiple fields win the IP innovation awards by WIPO and the  Shanghai government for their achievements in IP protection, application  and utilization.

Winners included East China Normal University Press, Shanghai Academy  of Spaceflight Technology and Spreadtrum Communications (Shanghai).

"IP transformation and application is at the heart of realizing the  value of intellectual property, and Shanghai has established an IP  operation and service system that embraces the resources of platforms,  institutions, capital, and industries," said Chen Qun, vice mayor of  Shanghai, at the forum.

"The city will further upgrade the system and strengthen policy  innovation to promote the value of intellectual property and to build  itself into a place for realizing the value of knowledge worldwide,"  Chen said.

Rao Zihe, academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, stressed  that the core of IP transformation and utilization lies in technological  breakthroughs, which is challenging for domestic basic research and the  construction of the IP system".

We should learn from the experiences of other countries and  accelerate IP innovation and corresponding services for the  transformation of scientific and technological achievements," Rao said.
