9.3 World Intellectual Property Organisation
One of the responsibilities of the WIPO is to assist least developed countries to deal with their IPR protection issues. Under its Development Sector programme, WIPO targets facilitation of the use of IP for socioeconomic and cultural development of the least developed countries such as those in the ACP. Through its PATENTSCOPE portal, access to full patent information is possible especially to scientists in the LCD countries especially those in the ACP. A number of online training materials relating to IP are also available on the WIPO website (
). World Intellectual Property Day is celebrated on 26
April each year. In 2012 the theme is Visionary Innovators.
