The World Intellectual Property Organization launched on 28th November a new online marketplace that brings together a wide variety of groups seeking to commercialize, license or distribute environmentally friendly technologies. WIPO GREEN aims to be an interactive marketplace that promotes innovation and diffusion of green technologies.
According to WIPO, at the center of the initiative is an extensive database of green technologies, inventions and patents, which come from a wide range of institutions, multinational companies and universities from around the world. WIPO GREEN assembles technologies at all stage of development, from upstream research to marketable products. Many of the technologies uploaded are inventions and early stage technologies.
The WIPO GREEN database offers a broad listing of green technology products, services and intellectual property assets. The database is freely accessible, only requiring a one-time registration.
