National IP Training Institutions

The WIPO Academy provides assistance to member states to establish national IP training institutions.

The aim of this work is to enable member states to create their own self-sustaining IP training capacity to support IP training focused on specific national goals and priorities.

Based on the experience acquired and lessons learned from the implementation of the CDIP's "Project for the Establishment of National Intellectual Property Academies (2009)", the WIPO Academy seeks to maximize regional cooperation in this work, as well as the use of national, sub-regional and regional expertise to complement international support.
