Project Summary

The United States proposes to explore tools and programs for bringing more efficiency to patent systems in the APEC region through two half-day workshops to be held SOM3 2024 and SOM1 2025. The workshops are meant to promote awareness on the importance of efficient, transparent, and quality processes to stakeholders and businesses looking to grow in international markets, and to explore how these tools reduce barriers to entry to the global patent system and promote a more inclusive system.

The first workshop will focus on the patent tools that can be used for updating/implementing various domestic patent processes. From searching techniques and tools, to routing, to re-using/accessing the work of other IP offices, and other tools, this workshop will be used to explain both the tools and what has worked in various IP offices. The second workshop will explore how worksharing programs/networks operate to alleviate resource and process burdens.
