All members of the IFIA Committee approved the candidates for voting at the General Assembly, except for the Swedish and China candidates, who were to be nominated by the IFIA member from Sweden and China. Due to the excessive absence of Chinese and Swedish candidates in the executive committee meetings from 2018 to 2020, it was decided that the two IFIA member countries will nominate a new candidate.
Please review the below three projects submitted to IFIA Secretariat by the following reference.
1- The technology transfer brokerage program ICCD (proposed by Mr.Koray from Turkey)
2- AI-based free and open source (algorithm) prior art search engine (PQAI) that can enable inventors across the globe to check the novelty of their ideas quickly and easily.(proposed by AT&T Mr.Sam ZelLner from the USA)
3- Sign the MOU between IFIA, ABIPIR, Indian Inventors’ Association, and Indian Startup – Sparkinov Open Innovation Platform. (proposed by Mr.Marcelo from Brazil)
The committee members approved the projects by a majority of votes.
