Do you find intellectual property (IP) management challenging? Join a workshop co-organized by WIPO GREEN and the IP for business team to learn more about managing IP for green products or technologies.

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is aiming to improve the understanding of IP management through the development of tools throughout the innovation process.

In June, WIPO GREEN and the IP and Innovation Ecosystems Sector will jointly organize an IP management workshop analyzing green products and technologies. Bringing together innovators, entrepreneurs and industry leaders, we aim to discuss how enterprises can better utilize IP as part of their business strategies.

What will you gain?

Companies presenting their product/technology will benefit from a systematic analysis by the organizers, feedback by experts in the field and experiences of their peers.

The discussion will also provide opportunities for networking and collaboration between the participating companies.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please indicate your interest, alongside a brief description of the product/technology (or the link to your WIPO GREEN database entry) and your country, by March 20, 2021.
