IPMO Background

The University of Dar es salaam (UDSM) established Intellectual Property Management Office (IPMO) to ensure that there is favorable environment that supports and encourages innovation and development in the course of research taking place within various academic programs in the University. UDSM brings together competent researchers in various fields with high technical capabilities. These researchers conduct studies which eventually come up with findings that represent a huge potential for forging links with the private sector in a manner that will steer economic and social development in the country and consequently, if properly tapped, may contribute immensely to the national economy and growth of private sector.
