Applied Research Centre for Intellectual Assets and the Law in Asia (ARCIALA)
The creation, management and protection of intellectual assets and related intellectual property rights (IPRs) have moved to the top of national, regional and global agendas over the last 20 years. They will remain there for the foreseeable future. Asia faces the unique challenge of melding the region’s huge growth potential with effective and practical policies to encourage creativity and innovation. Taking a multi-faceted and cross disciplinary approach, ARCIALA aims to position itself as a centre of excellence for applied knowledge on developments in the IP scene in Asia and the rest of the world.
ARCIALA will strive to be a leading research institution and a focal point for understanding and developing the treatment of intellectual assets not just in Singapore but also in Asia.
