Celebrated on April 26, World IP Day offers a unique opportunity to join with others around the globe to consider how intellectual property (IP) helps the global arts scene to flourish and enables the technological innovation that drives human progress.
In 2000, WIPO’s member states designated April 26 – the day on which the WIPO Convention came into force in 1970 – as World IP Day, with the aim of increasing general awareness and understanding of IP.
The theme of WIP 2023 is “Women and IP: Accelerating Innovation and Creativity”: In 2023, WIPO celebrates the “can do” attitude of women inventors, creators and entrepreneurs around the world and their ground-breaking work.
WIPO is the global forum for intellectual property policy, services, information and cooperation, and is actively working towards gender equality and the full participation of women in the international intellectual property (IP) rights system, both through systematic gender mainstreaming and targeted activities.
