GEG’s Dr Carolyn Deere Birkbeck recently presented findings from her external strategic review of the WIPO Academy to member states. The WIPO Academy is the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) training arm for developing countries.
Dr Deere-Birkbeck’s report was commissioned by the WIPO Secretariat, and is considered an internal document, but coverage on the report is here: ’WIPO Unveils Results Of Training Department Assessment. The Review focused on four areas: (i) WIPO’s strategic niche and comparative advantages in training; (ii) internal coordination; (iii) orientation and impact of programs, (iv) and management. Further discussion of the WIPO Academy is expected to emerge again in WIPO’s forthcoming Program and Budget discussions.
