Call for Innovations/Inventions/Creations Competition Award

Every April 26, we celebrate the World Intellectual Property (World IP) Day to learn about the role that IP rights play in encouraging innovation and creativity. The world recognizes the important role played by women in accelerating innovation and creativity towards a sustainable future.

Across the globe, women are stepping up to innovation challenges, using their energy and ingenuity, curiosity and creativity to steer a course towards a better future. Innovative, energetic and creative minds are helping to drive the changes we need to move to a more sustainable future. IP Agencies and organizations continue in their quest to discover how IP rights can support the women of today and tomorrow to create a better future.

The theme for the 2023 World IP Day is Women and IP: Accelerating Innovation and Creativity and celebrates women in innovation and creativity.
