What is WIPO?

Our mission is to promote innovation and creativity for the economic, social and cultural development of all countries, through a balanced and effective international intellectual property system.

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is the United Nations agency dedicated to the use of intellectual property (patents, copyright, trademarks, designs, etc.) as a means of stimulating innovation and creativity.

We promote the development and use of the international IP system through:

- Services - We run systems which make it easier to obtain protection internationally for patents, trademarks, designs and appellations of origin; and to resolve IP disputes.

- Law - We help develop the international legal IP framework in line with society’s evolving needs.

- Infrastructure - We build collaborative networks and technical platforms to share knowledge and simplify IP transactions, including free databases and tools for exchanging information.

- Development - We build capacity in the use of IP to support economic development.

We also work with our member states and stakeholders to improve understanding and respect for IP worldwide. We provide economic analysis and statistics. And we contribute IP-based solutions to help tackle global challenges.

Our activities all seek to further our nine strategic goals.
