In a serious attempt to address the climate change and facilitate the commercialization of inventions, IFIA, representing 135 associations, universities, research centers and companies into WIPO GREEN database.
IFIA partnership in WIPO GREEN, an online marketplace aiming to accelerate the development and deployment of green technologies, provides an outstanding opportunity for the members to connect with key global partners, the potential licensees, potential funders, and technology seekers from all around the world.
The inclusion of IFIA Green innovations in WIPO GREEN database which assembles in one place technologies at all stages of development – from upstream research to marketable products (and everything in between), makes them available for license, collaboration, joint ventures and sale.
WIPO GREEN seeks to overcome some of the complex challenges that often hamper rapid and broad diffusion and uptake of much needed green technologies. By injecting greater transparency into the green technology market, it seeks to encourage more active exchange creating opportunities for solutions that work in one part of the world to be applied elsewhere. â€œThe platform allows both the providers and the seekers of technology to communicate, to understand and know which technologies are available and how they can be accessed,â€ notes Zitouni Ould-Dada, Head of Technology Unit at UNEP.
