Qualcomm is a USA based multinational semiconductor and telecommunications equipment company that invents breakthrough technologies to improve global communication.
As always, it has come with a new impressive technology called L2Pro India IP in order to spread awareness among the startups, small companies and the innovators regarding the intellectual property (IP). The program was announced on October 14, 2019, by Qualcomm Incorporated and other authorities.
This L20Pro program is specially designed by the company for the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, university students and startups in India and will help them to bring their innovations quickly to market.
This will also allow them to deeply understand the IP domain, use of patents and copyrighting facilities, develop trademarks, integrate IP considerations into company business models, obtain value from research and development efforts and more.
Through a blog post, Alex Rogers, the executive vice president and president of Qualcomm Technology Licensing commented:
“Qualcomm invents the technologies that change the way people connect, compute, and communicate. We strongly believe in the importance of IP to foster innovation and entrepreneurship and enable technology ecosystems to thrive. The L2Pro India IP e-Learning Platform is a step forward in helping MSMEs and startups to protect their inventions and focus on bringing better products and services to the citizens of India. We are grateful for the support of the Department of for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), Government of India and National Law University Delhi in enabling implementation of this program. We look forward to meeting incredibly talented inventors and supporting their vision of making India a digitally empowered nation”.
Prof. (Dr.) Ranbir Singh, the founder Vice-Chancellor of National Law University in Delhi also expressed his views regarding the program.
“We take immense pleasure in collaborating with Qualcomm and CIPAM, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India to implement the L2Pro India IP e-Learning Platform.

As it was reported, Qualcomm also collaborated with DPIIT to develop an animation movie to train school students on the fundamentals of IP and was launched by the Minister for Commerce and Industry on March 8th, 2019. It is now being used by CIPAM for various purposes.
The company also launched similar programs in Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy and France; all of them received positive results. Therefore, it is also expecting the same results from India.
This platform will have 11 modules for three different levels: basic, intermediate and advanced. Each of the modules will cover various topics, e. g. e-text for understanding concepts, short animated videos of the concepts, links to additional resources on the subject and quizzes for assessment and grading the learner’s knowledge and understanding of the subject.
The IP learning platform can be accessed by desktops, mobile browsers, and a mobile app. The learners will also be given a joint e-certificates by CIPAM, NLUD, and Qualcomm after completing the program successfully.
This program will be conducted by Qualcomm Incorporated in collaboration with the Cell for IPR Promotion and Management of the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade, Government of India and the Centre for Innovation, Intellectual Property and Competition at National Law University Delhi.
