IP4Youth&Teachers

The WIPO Academy has developed a service to help teach creativity and inventiveness through intellectual property (IP) called IP4Youth&Teachers. The service kick-starts teachers and learners on their path to IP education by cultivating dialogue among educators, curricula setters, and IP offices by providing access to teaching and learning content. It is also a hub for sharing experiences, policy documents, business cases, and research on the benefits of early introduction to the role of IP in inventiveness and creativity.
