About the IAP Online Platform

The IAP Online Platform provides the customizable digital infrastructure for the Inventor Assistance Program (IAP). The Platform was launched in 2020 and allowed smooth operation of the Program during the pandemic, even when all of the offices shut down.

The Platform is used by the IAP applicants/beneficiaries, volunteers and focal points in each IAP participating country. It contains the workflow for managing applications of beneficiaries and volunteers, including the matchmaking process, provides focal points with a national dashboard, offers extensive information on the process for both inventors and volunteers, and also has significant search capabilities.

One big innovation is the ability to automatically work in multiple languages. Volunteers, applicants/beneficiaries and focal points can each work in the language they want, receive notifications etc. This gives us the confidence to work with a wider set of countries.
