WIPO Re:Search

Year Established: 2012

WIPO Re:Search provides access to intellectual property for pharmaceutical compounds, technologies, and – most importantly – know-how and data available for research and development for neglected tropical diseases, tuberculosis, and malaria. By providing a searchable, public database of available intellectual property assets and resources, WIPO Re:Search facilitates new partnerships to support organizations that conduct research on treatments for neglected tropical diseases, ultimately improving the lives of those most in need.

An important aspect of WIPO Re:Search is the opportunity it creates to transfer knowledge and build capacity at both the institutional and individual, human level. Recognizing the essential human aspect of development, IP Australia, the Australian Government agency that administers intellectual property (IP) rights, has generously made available financial resources under a Funds-in-Trust grant to WIPO to enable scientists from developing and Least Developed Countries to take ‘sabbaticals’ at the research facilities of developed country Members of WIPO Re:Search. Placements for these ‘hosting arrangements’ are arranged by BIO Ventures for Global Health, and to date have involved scientists from Cameroon, Egypt, Ghana, Nigeria, and South Africa.
