Ready, Steady…GO – the invention competition is on

    No comments:

The Peruvian IPO (Indecopi) launched this week the XXI National Invention Competition 2022 . The call is for all inventors and innovators who have until September 27, 2022 to submit their application. This initiative, which is in its 22nd edition, aims to encourage and recognize the inventiveness and ‘creative spirit of Peruvian inventors, researchers and entrepreneurs’. The contest offers three categories and offers a cash prize to the winners for a total of USD 5,000. 

The categories:

  1.  First Place Award, distinguishing the national ‘invention that is considered the most outstanding’, assessed as exceptionally due to the ‘potential economic, social and commercial/productive impact that it can generate’. 
  2. Green Patent Award, recognizing the invention with a great applicability in the area of environment and or climate change. 
  3. Peruvian Inventor Award which recognizes women in the field – this could be an individual or a group of only women, which invention is ‘considered the most inventive and with the greatest potential impact for the country’. 
To participate in this exciting event, you shall have a patent application pending at Indecopi - between January 1, 2021 and September 27, 2022, and not have participated in previous editions of this competition. 

Good luck my Peruvian friends! May the odds be in your favour.
