3. IFIA Proposed Events
IFIA President, Mr. Vedres, proposed the organization of World Competitions and International Inventors’ Day.
- 4th Computer Implemented Inventions – connected to Shiraz IFIII, 22-26 April – 31 items from 9 countries (46/6, 2013 Geneva)
- 3rd Chemical Inventions – connected to IWIS, 8 -10 October
- 4th Eco-inventions – connected to IENA, 31 October – 3 November
The criteria for the organization of International Inventors’ Day is to be coincident with a national inventors’ day which was accepted by the EC. The ExCo chose Brazil inventors’ day. Unfortunately we did not get any information about Brazil inventors’ day. Therefore the celebration in Brazil connecting to INNOVAWORLD (9-11 October) would be illegal.
The Association of Hungarian Inventors proposed to celebrate the 7th International Inventors’ Day on the Hungarian Inventors Day. This is the priority day (13 June, 1941) of the patent application of the first Vitamin C technology invented by Albert Szent-Györgyi (Nobel-prize awarded Hungarian scientist and inventor). The 6th HU Inventors’ Day will be celebrated on 13 June, 2014, Budapest together with the 7th Celebration of IID by a real and virtual celebration titled “Honor to the inventors”.
The members of ExCO unanimously accepted the proposal
4. Next EC meeting
