The website of Ministry of Science and Technology, on February 27, released the Special Program of IP Work in Technology Innovation of 12th Five-Year Plan. The program points out that in the 11th Five-Year Plan period, the guiding role of intellectual property to scientific and technological innovation was increasingly apparent, but generally the incentive and promotional role of intellectual property system to technological innovation in China remains to be furthered, and the level and ownership of independent intellectual property can not meet the needs of economic and social development.

The program emphasizes that in the 12th Five-Year Plan period, the intellectual property work in technology innovation will be comprehensively strengthened, that the IP creation, protection and management ability need be significantly enhanced and that the independent intellectual property ownership and the supporting role of technological innovation to economic and social development will be significantly enhanced.
