                          In addition, the exhibitors have
                          received a number of special awards
                          to the individuals and organizations
                          that participated in this year’s
                          exhibition.
                          The main task of the International
                          Exhibition of Inventions IWIS
                          is to present achievements of
                          polish scientists and inventors to
                          national and foreign entrepreneurs
                          and institutions. This creates the
                          opportunity to establish commercial
                          contracts for the implementation of
                          innovations to the industry, which

will have a contribution to the growth of the polish economy.
Another important aim of IWIS is to promote innovative
attitude and innovation-based perception of the world among
young people, what can be the motor for taking on new
challenges.
 The Opening Ceremony of the 13th International Warsaw
Invention Show IWIS 2019 was accompanied by Rector of
Warsaw University of Technology prof. Stanisław Wincenciak,
minister Piotr Ziółkowski from Ministry of Science and Higher
Education and the President of the International Federation
of Inventors’ Associations Mr. Alireza Rastegar. During the
ceremony, a short speech were given also by the president of
the Polish Federation of Engineering Associations NOT Ewa
Mańkiewicz – Cudny.

    task to select the best solution, each of them presented very high substantive and technological level.
    Finally, Grand Prix IWIS 2019 went to Oil and Gas Institute – National Research Institute from Poland for
    “A biocidal-stabilising composition for biofuels”. The invention subject consists of a biocidal – stabilizing
    composition for biofuels, in particular for fatty acids methyl esters as a biocomponent to the diesel oil or an
    independent alternative fuel to the diesel oil. It is known that biofuel storage and distribution conditions increase
    its susceptibility to microbiological infection. This manifests in precipitation of deposits and slurries, biofuel
    propensity for emulsification, and permanent emulsions increase the bioesters propensity for hydrolysis and
    increased acid number. A microbiological infection results in the fuel turbidity and in filterability deterioration,
    in increased pollution in the form of deposits, in fuel colour and smell change, and increased viscosity. In
    many cases microbes in contact with water form a biofilm strongly adhering to tanks surfaces. The biofilm
    matrix structure is stabilized due to extracellular polymeric substances (EPS). A biofilm formation is a process
    consisting of many stages. In the first, stage microbes are initially connected to the tank surface by weak bonds,
    remaining in permThe biofilm matrix structure is stabilized due to extracellular polymeric substances (EPS). A
    biofilm formation is a process consisting of many stages. Biofilm affects electrochemical processes proceeding
    on the metal surface. The electrochemical processes proceeding on the metal surface break the passive layer
    and pitting or even crevice corrosion occurs, very difficult to monitor and is the reason for tank walls damage,
    threatening with fuel leakage. A biocidal – stabilizing composition for biofuels features improved biocidal –
    stabilizing properties through inhibition of biofilm matrix formation and prevention of microbiologically
    induced corrosion. It contains a surfactant with properties highly wetting the surface, preventing irreversible
    adhesion of microbes and a biocidal compound, containing in particular an oxazolidine groups, an oxidation
    inhibitor, a hydrocarbon solvent, and a co-solvent.
    The Main Award of International Federation of Inventors Associations IFIA went to JIW INWEX Sp. z o.o. from
    Poland for the invention „Polish Health Foods – a panecea for chronic diseases”. In Poland, the list of chronic
    diseases is published in the Journal of Laws, by way of a Regulation of the Ministry of Health and Health Care.
    The list includes over 150 disease entities. The most important diseases include cardiovascular diseases,
    diabetes, neoplasms, epilepsy, and obesity. Chronic diseases constitute a group of diseases that are currently
    incurable, last all life, and cause premature death. The chronic disease incidence rate is increased by more than
    ten percent each year. The main cause for these diseases is the total lack of macro, micro- and ultra elements
    in the soil, and thus in the whole food chain, as well as the presence of toxic pesticides. The creators have
    developed a comprehensive technology of fertilising the soil with micronised supplements in the amount of
    100 easily accessible elements, as well as ecological fertilizers and plant protection products. In the course
    of the past few years, laboratory, garden, and industrial research have been performed which demonstrated
    a two- or three-fold increase in organic crops with multiple amounts of supplements, vitamins, tannins, and
    enzymes. During the IWIS 2019 not only research institutes presented their achievements. Among exhibitors
    were also enterprises, universities, schools, and individual inventors. All solutions were classified according to
    12 different categories ranging from ecology and environmental protection, mechanics, electronics, energy to
    medical solutions.
    World Competition of Chemical Inventors is the contest organized by the International Federation of Inventors’
    Association IFIA. During this year’s exhibition, the 8th edition of the World Competition of Chemical Inventions
    has taken place.

The main prize of the 8th World
Competition of Chemical Inventions went
to Malaysia for the invention “Utilization
of Biomaterials Derived from Cockle
Shell Waste as Bio-scaffold in Bone
Tissue Engineering” from UNIVERSITI
MALAYSIA PAHANG. The ultimate
objective of this study is to develop bone
scaffold derived from cockle shells that
have good physicochemical, mechanical
and      biocompatibility        properties
to be applied as material in dental
application for bone tissue engineering.
The process of fabricating the bone
scaffold involved four main stages; pre-
treatment of cockle shells, production
of Hydroxyapatite (HAP), fabrication of
bone scaffold using HAP and Calcium
Carbonate (CaCO3) and verification of
bone scaffold for its physicochemical,
mechanical       and      biocompatibility
properties. Based on our research,
the production of bio-scaffold derived
from cockle shells is feasible in terms
of those properties as compared
with the natural bone. This work is in
collaboration with Faculty of Restorative
Dentistry University of Malaya as the
end-user of the bone scaffold. Overall,
the development of this product will
eventually help to reduce the cost of
dental/bone implant. In summary, the
13th edition of International Warsaw
Invention Show IWIS 2019 was a great
success. The event every year attracts
more and more exhibitors and visitors.
We hope that the exhibition will result
in a number of implementations of the
presented inventions and innovations.
Congratulations to all participants of the
exhibition.

innovation were discussed. Particularly well attended were
the lively panel discussion on China’s innovation policies in
comparison to Europe and the iENA symposium entitled
“Good ideas, and then what?”, as well as the presentation
of the state and national “Jugend forscht” winners in the
field of technology. The range of information that iENA
offers was expanded by the participation of national and
international inventor associations and organizations,
which support development from initial idea to market
readiness.
The Innovation Congress on a growth course
Around 120 participants — that is significantly more than
in the previous year — attended the 2019 Innovation
Congress, which was held under the motto “Successfully
managing innovations”. Speakers from science and
industry attended from various sectors and provided an
absorbing congress that was rich in variety. Participants
showed great interest and useful discussion groups formed
after the presentations. A tour of the iENA inventors’ fair
rounded off the congress for the attendees.
The next iENA will take place from the 29th of October
to the 1st of November 2020 in Hall 3C of the Nuremberg
Exhibition Center.

                              in this year.
                              It is commendable to
                              support       innovation
                              by     this    important
                              magazine. One of the
                              problems of inventors
                              is the lack of attention
                              of the mass media to
                              the dissemination of
                              innovation news.
                              Inventors           and
                              innovators make every

                              world for us, That’s
                              why they deserve more
                              attention and respect.
                              We hope that other

                                                 Introduction
                                                 As you know the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) gives
                                                 international recognition to the property rights in IP and serves as the
                                                 linchpin in the monetization of IP. With the ever-expanding spread of
                                                 innovations and technology in the new age, for instance in 2017 Trademark
                                                 filing activity totaled 14.3 million and this growth has been double digits
             WHICH APPROACH IS NEEDED?

                                                 in most developed and developing countries since last year; as a result,
                                                 we are facing an increase in the share of intellectual property in world
                                                 trade and of course WIPO will play an increasingly important role. In this
                                                 article we are going to present an overview of the activities of WIPO and
                                                 NGOs. The significance of the same will demonstrate the crucial case of
                                                 the upcoming general secretary of WIPO.

                                                 development of a balanced and effective international IP system that
                                                 enables innovation and creativity for the benefit of all. Around 250 non-
                                                 governmental organizations (NGOs) like IFIA and intergovernmental
                                                 organizations (IGOs) have official observer status at WIPO meetings. WIPO
                                                 welcomes the inclusion of stakeholder organizations and interested groups
                                                 as observers at the formal meetings of member states. Nongovernmental
                                                 organizations Task-oriented and driven by people with a common interest,
                                                 NGOs perform a variety of service and humanitarian functions, bring citizen
                                                 concerns to Governments, advocate and monitor policies and encourage
                                                 political participation through provision of information. WIPO also seeks
                                                 to involve NGOs, IGOs, industry groups, and all other partners as widely as
                                                 possible in consultation processes and debates about current issues. These
                                                 NGOs all work in different areas of WIPO intellectual property ranging
                                                 from legal to scientific, research and commercial.
                                                 Today, WIPO handles much of the governance of governments with NGOs
                                                 in the field of IP.
                                                 WIPO monitors work on the following committees that cover the
                                                 organization's missions:

this election. Also, these organizations should provide their governments
with their experience and scientific advice to select the right person in the
mentioned fields.
