Intellectual Property Analysis and Advocacy Centre (IPAAC) has been established with the objective of enhancing the intellectual property knowledge base and research capabilities of the country in general, and the State of Odisha in particular. The centre attempts to achieve these aims through a two pronged strategy. Firstly, it attempts to disseminate information on intellectual property rights
with a view to create awareness in the public in general about their rights and duties. Secondly, it initiates research into relatively unexplored and novel areas, taking into consideration the industrial application of intellectual property.
