WIPO: Young Experts Program (YEP)

WIPO is pleased to announce the launch today of its first-ever Young Experts Program (YEP).

This program is targeted at young (aged 35 years and under) and promising talent, ideally from developing, least developed countries and countries in transition. It is designed to train them in the technical and policy aspects of IP, as well as nurture their ability to take on administrative and leadership roles.  Through this program, participants will be groomed to contribute to the development of the innovation and creative ecosystems of their respective countries and regions, and eventually as the future global leaders of IP.

The application process will open on October 28, 2021, and close on November 19, 2021. We encourage you to share this information through your relevant networks and encourage qualified candidates to apply. Please note that the application process is through direct applications by candidates and not through a national nomination process. More information on the Young Experts Program, including how to apply, can be found on the WIPO website at: www.wipo.int/yep
