The IPTI Network

We connect and support our network of IPTIs by providing spaces to encourage joint activities. The network groups IPTIs that currently receive the support of the WIPO Academy, and other selected partners. Through our network we promote horizontal cooperation using national and regional expertise, and we offer services including a repository of training resources.

The Map provides an overview of the geographical distribution of established IPTIs, in addition to basic information including the contact details of focal points.
