WIPO GREEN experts explain how intellectual property rights (IPRs) can serve agricultural research and benefit the action to combat related global challenges.

Innovation is crucial to combatting many of the global challenges, environmental protection and food security among them. To stimulate innovation and recognize, encourage and protect inventors, IPR systems allow time-bound control over the use of an invention, whether commercially or for the public benefit.

In this webinar, WIPO GREEN experts – Dr. Peter Oksen, Senior Program Officer, Anja von der Ropp, Senior Program Coordinator, and Yan Zhong, Associate Program officer – introduce patents and other relevant IPRs instruments in the context of agricultural research for development.
