World Intellectual Property Organization Promotes Green Technology

December 06, 2013

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has recently launched WIPO GREEN – an online marketplace to facilitate commercial relationships and transactions by connecting green technology providers with companies seeking to commercialize, license or otherwise distribute green technologies.

The database, which is freely accessible, offers green technology providers greater visibility for their products, services and IP assets (including inventions, patents, technologies and know-how) for sale or license, helping to attract partners and finance. The database’s listing of innovative green technologies, IP assets and experts makes it a useful resource for investors, entrepreneurs and licensing managers looking to construct and execute deals in the green technology space. It is also possible for users to advertise their technological needs (including specific technologies and IP assets, funding and training) on the database. The network hosts a freely accessible online roster of green technology consultants and service providers, who offer expertise in a wide range of areas including IP management, licensing and investment. WIPO hope that WIPO GREEN will become the go-to platform for green technologies helping to accelerate innovation and diffusion of green technologies and contribute to the efforts in addressing climate change.
