Project Description: 

  • Develop a model to link the WIPO GREEN database with the PATENTSCOPE database, by using the existing WIPO GREEN categorization and the IPC GREEN Inventory. In this way, users can easily see all “hidden,” but relevant, inventions and innovations from PATENTSCOPE and make it easily accessible to anyone.
  • Users of WIPO GREEN would see high level information about inventions and could visualize it by technology category, geography (maps), inventor institutions, by patents that are still in force or have expired (i.e. that are in the public domain), etc.
  • The pilot project would be centered around one technology category, water.

Organization Description:

WIPO has the largest patent collection database, called PATENTSCOPE, with over 59 million patent document and 3.1 million published international patent applications. This constitutes a gold mine of knowledge. Some are still under patent protection while the majority is already in the public domain. The information, or knowledge around both, is in the public domain and expressed through published patents. The WIPO GREEN platform was established as a marketplace to promote innovation and facilitate the transfer of green technologies, in particular to developing countries, in order to combat climate change and other environmental challenges.
