NACCE has partnered with the Michelson 20MM Foundation to launch an intellectual property (IP) education pilot through community colleges across the country. IP curriculum covers the essentials of patents, trademarks, copyright, trade secrets and more. IP comprises 45 percent of the country’s total GDP today and represents 80 percent of the market value of all publicly traded companies in the United States. The pilot program began in December 2016 and continues to expand among NACCE member community colleges.
As a result of this pilot, the Michelson 20MM Foundation has created the Michelson Institute for Intellectual Property. They provide instructors, students, and creators with first-of-a-kind resources about patents, copyrights, trademarks, and more - all for FREE!
