||Ms. Dimitra Christakou is an international expert in green technology and will be hired for the below-mentioned project under an ICS, including some travelling. She will have discussions with SME representatives, universities, government representatives and NGO’s.
A project to facilitate transfer of wastewater treatment technologies has been approved to be funded through FIT Japan. This project specifically aims to:
(i) identify the specific needs of Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam for wastewater treatment technology;
(ii) describe and formulate the needs for uploading onto the WIPO GREEN database;
(iii) identify collaboration opportunities around the identified needs with particular emphasis on national capacity and SME contributions, and facilitate the development of a technology transfer agreement;
(iv) develop a case study based on the findings and the evidence on the technology transfer landscape, which will also include a part on WIPO GREEN’s contribution to overcoming the challenges (to be published on the WIPO GREEN website);
(v) showcase WIPO GREEN as an effective marketplace tool for finding and displaying needs and technological solutions, and
(vi) build capacity on IP issues related to technology transfer and for using IP as a tool for development (commercialization, licensing and IP management).
The work will be concluded with a workshop with the involvement of the countries, bringing technology providers and users together and allowing for cross-country sharing of experiences. We are planning to organize this workshop in the Philippines in the first quarter of 2015.
