We work with Brazilian institutions, as well as with institutions from other developing countries, to create lasting value from IP assets.

Alternative dispute resolution

Since July 2013, the Brazilian National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) and the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center offer a joint dispute resolution procedure to facilitate the mediation of IP disputes pending before INPI.

PCT system for patents

Brazil joined the PCT in 1978. In 2014 PCT filings experienced double digit growth and were the highest in the latin American Region.


Users can conduct searches in this free collection of patent documents – including international patent applications submitted under the PCT and Brazil's national patent collection – in English and nine other languages.

Brazil and WIPO initiatives

South-South cooperation

In 2012 the Brazilian government committed over 1 million USD for a Funds-in-Trust (FIT) exclusively dedicated to South-South cooperation. We administer this FIT which is aimed at increasing the capacity of developing countries to use IP tools for their economic and social development. Our activities under this FIT include the training of patent examiners.


Together with our Brazilian partners, we help connect seekers of new environmental solutions with Brazilian providers of cutting-edge green technology and services via this online marketplace.

Our Brazilian partners include:

Public outreach

We regularly participate in general public outreach activities to increase awareness about WIPO Services and activities among the public.

Films on Brazilan innovators

In cooperation with the Funds-in-Trust Japan – Industrial Property Global, we produced short documentaries featuring innovators from Brazil. These films bring to life various success stories on locally developed IP in practice.
