Patent-related incentives and impediments to transfer of technology

01 July 2013

The IP Federation has submitted a response to the Standing Committee on the Law of Patents (SCP) of WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization), who invited observers to the SCP to submit practical examples and experiences on patent-related incentives and impediments to transfer of technology to the International Bureau on or before 30 June 2013.

Although the practical experience of technology transfer of our members varies widely, and many of these experiences are commercially sensitive, we hope that the general observations set out in our response are of help in the revision of the document on transfer of technology (document  SCP/18/8).
