PRIORITY REVIEW FOR GREEN PATENTS

The Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) has implemented a pilot program since 2012 in order to expedite patent processes in the areas of alternative energy, transportation, energy conservation, waste management and agriculture, all classified as Green inventory according to the WIPO.

 

This pilot program has been so successful that last December 6th a permanent service has been established. The main focus of this initiative is based on the various global environmental challenges and to encourage innovation in these areas of technology.
