The synergy generated by WIPO Match
WIPO Match is a free online platform used to match seekers of specific intellectual property and innovation related development needs with potential providers offering resources.
The preparation and opportunity are brought together in WIPO Match to create a conducive and trusted environment to amplify the chances for fruitful innovation and technical assistance projects.
WIPO Match is a synergistic amalgam of visions. In this context, the vision of WIPO is to demystify IP and make it accessible to all IP stakeholders with an inclusive ecosystem where all stakeholders can participate and benefit from it.
The IsDB vision intersects the vision of WIPO in planning a sustainable future with global partnerships, and driving innovation to a value chain development approach . It is notable that IsDB has made available an extraordinary fund of a half billion dollars to spur innovation in their 57 members states with a market of 1,7 billion people. This is a leading example of how a financial institution like IsDB can inspire innovation within the metes and bounds of WIPO.
WIPO Match is the lubricant which facilitates IP-based cross collaborations and the frictionless interaction among the growing members of WIPO Match community (to-date 120 members from 53 countries with different backgrounds as you can see on this slide)
WIPO Match Community
In addition to include the objectives of the various programs/sectors of WIPO, The strength of WIPO Match is that all members have the like-minded approach to develop a supportive , sustainable and innovative environment towards achieving the SDGs 2030.
In line with this spirit to support global Development, WM is not only part of the United Nations CONNECT 2030 platform which supports Science Technology Innovation (STI), but is also part of the United Nations South-South Galaxy platform which encourages Southern partnerships in the area of innovations
Public-Private Partnerships, South-South and North-South Cooperation and the Sustainable Development Goals bolster all WIPO Match partnerships. Once a Match crystallizes, it does not precipitate out of the conduit, but continues to flow through and nucleates further Matches.
The underpinning of WIPO Match is to ensure that the last link in the innovation cycle of any project be strong enough towards commercialization. Therefore, in WIPO Match’s vision, the engagement of the Private Sector will be crucial to complete this step.
Today with our respective valuable networks and good willingness , if we stand together, we will be not only stronger, but we will also be able to maximize our resources towards delivering sustainable and profitable projects everywhere in the world.
