Innovation and Technology Support Office (ITSO)
The Innovation and Technology Support Office, also known as ITSO, are universities and institution-accomplices of the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL), that have been equipped with in-house patent libraries.
During 2010, the IPOPHLlaunched a project to establish Innovation and Technology Support Offices (ITSO) or "Patent Libraries" within universities and higher education institutions. And in 2014, Batangas State University became one of its Host institutions.
"ITSO aims to strengthen the university's capacity to access patent information for use in research, education, idea generation and general business development. At the same time, ITSO envisioned to be the patent service providers not just in the university but also in local communities, conducting not only patent searches but also patent drafting, prosecution representation, advisory, training and over-all IP management. Furthermore, ITSO seeks to foster creation of intellectual property (IP) in the academe and research sectors, particularly in copyrights, industrial designs, inventions and utility models."
