WIPO Inventor Assistance Programme (IAP)
A World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) initiative, the Singapore chapter of the IAP aims to support young inventors (aged 18-35) in Singapore to transform their innovation into commercial assets by matching selected beneficiaries with a volunteer patent attorney or agent to help them navigate the patent system.
Join the programme* and access a network of patent drafting and prosecution services that will be provided on a pro-bono basis to beneficiaries in Singapore.
Singapore is the eighth country in the world to launch the IAP, which is currently active in Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Morocco, Peru, the Philippines, and South Africa. More information on the IAP around the world can be found here.
