WIPO offers patent drafting workshops in collaboration with member states, national and regional intellectual property (IP) offices and institutions. Upon request by member states, tailor-made workshops are held at the national and regional level.

Who should attend?

The workshops are primarily addressed to:

  • staff of institutions dealing with technology support – such as technology transfer offices of universities and public research centers;
  • staff of WIPO Technology and Innovation Support Centers (TISCs);
  • government agencies involved in providing technology development assistance; and
  • patent professionals who support inventors.

Since they are tailor-made trainings, targeted participants depend on the objectives of each training, set together with the collaborating member state.

Registration fees

The workshops are free-of-charge.

Where do the workshops take place?

The workshops take place in the countries with which WIPO co-organizes the workshops. In the case of regional workshops, the activity takes place in one of the countries within the concerning region.
