22/03/2012 - 10:15 - 12:15

Invitation (registration required)

On the occasion of World Water Day 2012, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), in cooperation with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the Global Institute for Water Environment and Health (GIWEH), has the pleasure to invite you to this Workshop.

The Workshop will offer an opportunity to learn about the role of patent information as a tool to support two pressing water challenges, namely, water desalination using alternative energies and water treatment/purification, for which two patent landscape reports (PLRs) have been prepared for WIPO by Cambridge Intellectual Property Ltd. in cooperation with IRENA and GIWEH. The Presentation on the PLRs will be followed by a Panel of experts in the field of water challenges and technologies and patent information, and time for dialogue between panelists and participants.


Room NB 0.107 in the new WIPO building (34, chemin des Colombettes)
