World Intellectual Property Organization

Communications Division

The WIPO Communications Division is responsible for developing and delivering diverse communications strategies and content, which explain the IP system in an engaging and informative way, and which contribute to better understanding of WIPO’s role.

We also lead the organization-wide customer service initiative to improve the way WIPO handles enquiries from our stakeholders and the public.
