DR. Insil Lee, the President of Korea Women Inventors Association states:
Korea Women Inventors Association assists women to grow and have economic independence based on intellectual property by helping them fulfill their creative potentials.
To improve women’s participation in economic activities is a vital task which Korea’s national competitiveness depends on. The government-level attention and efforts are increasing to resolve the issue of women’s career interruption.
‘Invention’ can provide women the opportunity of participation in new economic activities. Invention idea can be commercialized or the technology behind the idea can be transferred by obtaining its related intellectual property right. ‘Invention’ is not always something magnificent done by someone special. You can start with one ‘small invention’ which can make life a little bit better, and then become a business person, eventually. We can find several of such cases without difficulties.
Korea Women Inventors Association has conducted a ‘women invention promotion project’ to help out women’s invention activities. Any women can present their own creativity through ‘Women Inventors Creativity Class’, realize their own ideas via ‘Life Invention Korea’ and also, earn intellectual property rights. If you are about to proceed with a commercialization process, you can display and promote your products developed from your invention by participating in ‘Korea International Women’s Invention Exposition’.
Under the motto of ‘from idea to commercialization’, Korea Women Inventors Association has relentlessly found and supported women with unlimited potentials and growth abilities to help them to be successful inventors and entrepreneurs.
Korea Women Inventors Association will always be with women inventors.
