April 26 - World Intellectual Property Day


The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), together with the Member States, will once again celebrate World Intellectual Property Day on 26 April 2020. On this April day, we recall that on 26 April 1970 the Convention establishing the World Intellectual Property Organization entered into force.

The aim of the celebrations is to contribute to raising awareness of the importance of the IP system for the protection of the results of creative activity, innovation etc. The motto of this year's World Intellectual Property Day is "Innovation for the Green Future". Further information on World Intellectual Property Day is available on the WIPO website
