World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)

Helping Inventors Invent World Changing Products Faster

Over 300 million children live in places where outdoor pollution is toxic.


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.

Anatole Krattiger Will Be Speaking On Behalf Of The World Intellectual Property Organization About Their Cause

During The Predictive World Speaker Conference



WIPO GREEN is an interactive marketplace that promotes innovation and diffusion of green technologies by promoting skill and technology sharing. WIPO GREEN consists of an online database and network that brings together a wide range of players in the green technology innovation value chain, and connects owners of new technologies with individuals or companies looking to commercialize, license or otherwise access or distribute a green technology. SIDS will benefit from technological innovation in the areas of clean energy, energy efficiency, waste water treatment and sustainable agriculture offered by a range of technology providers via WIPO GREEN. In this way, we help not only to accelerate innovation and diffusion of green technologies, but also contribute to the efforts of developing countries in addressing climate change.

Implementation Methodologies

The WIPO GREEN Database allows you to search green technology products, services and intellectual property assets, as well as post an announcement of a need. Anyone with a green technology can apply to add their technology to the database and the searches are open to all. The WIPO GREEN network helps facilitate commercial relationships and transactions by connecting green technology providers and seekers, and acts as a gateway to a range of useful services.


WIPO GREEN traces its origins to WIPO’s discussions with the Japan Intellectual Property Association (JIPA) and other industry partners, who were keen to establish a mechanism that would inject transparency into green technology markets, particularly for developing countries. A pilot database of green technologies available for license or sale was established by WIPO in 2012, which was followed by the formal launch of WIPO GREEN and its network in November 2013.
