IP Development Matchmaking Database

IP Development Matchmaking Database

Find out what you can do

WIPO's Development Matchmaking Database offers a user-friendly process to match member states' IP-related development needs with available resources.

It was developed in response to Recommendation 9 of the WIPO Development Agenda, namely: "Request WIPO to create, in coordination with Member States, a database to match specific intellectual property-related development needs with available resources, thereby expanding the scope of its technical assistance programs, aimed at bridging the digital divide."

You can use this site to seek ideas or to tell us what you are looking for. We will contact you to discuss potential partnering opportunities.
