The WIPO patent landscape report project isbased on the Development Agenda projectDA_19_30_31_01 “Developing Tools for Access to Patent Information” describedin document CDIP/4/6, adopted by theCommittee on Development and IntellectualProperty (CDIP) at its fourth session heldfrom November 16 to November 20, 2009.
The purpose of each report is three fold :•
It attempts to research and describethe patterns of patenting and innovation
activity related to specic technologies
in various domains such as health, foodand agriculture, climate change relatedtechnologies, and others.
WIPO attempts to collaborate for eachreport with institutional partners (IGOs,NGOs, public institutions of Member
States) working in the respective eldand having an interest in a specic topic.
The collaborative work in the planning andevaluation phases may also serve as avehicle for these institutions to familiar-ize themselves with the utilization andexploitation of patent information andrelated issues of patent protection. WIPOwelcomes proposals for collaboration.
Each report also serves as an illustrativeexample for retrieving patent information
in the respective eld and how search
strategies may be tailored accordingly. Ittherefore includes detailed explanationsof the particular search methodology, thedatabases used and well documentedsearch queries that should ideally enablethe reader to conduct a similar search.Each report of this project is contracted out
to an external rm selected in a tendering
procedure. The tender is open to a limitednumber of bidders that were pre-selectedbased on their submission of an Expressionof Interest (EOI). WIPO invites the submis-
sion of further EOIs by qualied providers.
