The Academic Institutions Program (AIP) of the WIPO Academy makes extensive use of literature and resources on flexibilities in implementation of international IP agreements, most notably the flexibilities in the TRIPS Agreement.
For this purpose, the AIP relies on IP experts in the WIPO Secretariat, outside IP experts, and, at the same time, relies on relevant materials (publications and documents) produced by other relevant international organizations, such as the World Trade Organization (WTO), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the United Nations Commission on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).
All the Master’s degree programs and the annual WIPO-WTO Colloquium for Teachers of IP include one or more topics on flexibilities in relation to patents, public health issues, food security, climate change, etc. List below:
