About the Hall of Fame
The Inventor’s Hall of Fame was created a few years ago to encourage young persons in Trinidad and Tobago to think about being the next great inventor and to be inspired by those who toiled and became successful. It is partially modeled on the USPTO Inventors Hall of Fame and is primarily geared towards schoolchildren under the IP4youthTT programme.
Trinbagonian nationals with two or more registered IP rights ( either design or patent rights preferably but inclusive of trademarks ) are considered for entry. Entrants would have distinguished themselves firstly with registrations in Trinidad and Tobago and some may have registered their IP rights similarly abroad. The invention must have had an impact in Trinidad and Tobago.
Induction is done through the award of a commemorative plaque and entry on the Wall similar to the USPTO wall entries at their Hall of Fame. The signed entries are then later reproduced permanently. See USPTO Inventors Hall of Fame also.
It is our hope that school tours can be arranged to the IPO to view the Hall of Fame which will also include actual exhibits ( prototypes ) of Inventions made in Trinidad and Tobago.
There are plans for a full Inventors Hall Fame foyer in future plans for the IPO.
