World IP Day 2018

Copyright © Françoise Herrmann

For many different reasons, women are significantly under-represented in IP even though they bring game-changing and life-enhancing solutions to all domains of science, technology, business, education, and the arts.

This year, in an effort to recognize women's unique contribution to the world of innovation, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), under the auspices of the United Nations, is celebrating World Intellectual Property Day, with the theme:  Powering change: Women in innovation and creativity,

World IP Day is celebrated, since 2000, on April 26, commemorating the day that the WIPO Convention became effective, in 1970. As a reminder, WIPO is a self-funded United Nations agency, bringing together 191 member states, committed to the development of an IP system that benefits everyone.
