WIPO Academy
The WIPO Academy was founded in March 1998 in response to demand for knowledge and skills in intellectual property (IP) training, teaching and research. The Academy offers a wide and growing range of general and specialized courses on all aspects of intellectual property (IP) and its management. Delivered both by traditional, face-to-face means as well as distance learning, these tailored programs are designed to equip an expanding number of target groups with the specialist knowledge and tools they need to find their way around the IP system, to use it effectively and to manage their IP assets. Its programs cater to different target audiences - inventors and creators, business managers and IP professionals, policy makers and government officials of IP institutions, diplomats and representatives, students and teachers of intellectual property and the civil society. The Academy’s rich portfolio of interdisciplinary courses caters to a wide range of IP educational needs: • Students from a range of disciplines (e.g. law, engineering, business) can grasp the fundamentals of the IP system • Policymakers and diplomats can examine and discuss the pivotal importance of IP for development and economic growth; • Administrators can explore best practices to improve the delivery of IP services back home • • Academics can widen their understanding of emerging trends in IP Legal professionals can hone their practical IP skills and knowledge

The Academy seeks to continuously stay innovative by offering new programs to keep up with the ever-changing IP landscape. It also aims to promote international cooperation for enhancing IP human capital through global networking with stakeholders and partners.
