Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) is conducting an Online Certificate Course on IPR and Pharmaceutical R&D.
To provide the platform to understand the working of pharmaceutical industry, its business models, research, regulatory aspects and its relevance with respect to intellectual property rights.
Pharmaceutical industry is a research based industry and requires scientists in huge numbers every year. The growing pharmaceutical R&D operations fuel the need for understanding IPR (Intellectual property rights) for pharmacy graduates and those in research. IPR is important in this era of globalization and competition.
The current academic syllabus of pharmacy courses do not provide adequate knowledge about the research activities in the pharmaceutical industry, the business models, intellectual property rights and their relevance in research (Pharma R & D) and business environment which is global and highly competitive.
This course is aimed to fulfill these requirements and is designed for pharmacy students and junior level scientists in the pharmaceutical industry.
This is an online course of 6 months duration. The students would be provided with one module in first 5 months and the sixth module is based on case study. The students are required to study the 5 modules and need to prepare a case study based on the learnings and contents of the course.
At the end of sixth month there would be an online examination and certificates would be issued to the successful candidates.
