Priority review for green technologies in Brazil

The Instituto Nacional da Propriedade Industrial (INPI), with the support of EUROCLIMA+, held a workshop to promote the Green Patents Programme in Brazil.

São Paulo, October 31 - The event is part of the actions for the “Stimulus to the promotion and granting of green patents as a mechanism for addressing the commitments made by Brazil through the Paris Agreement (NDC)”, which the EUROCLIMA+ programme and INPI are promoting in Brazil.

The Green Patent Programme of Brazil's National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) aims to accelerate the evaluation of green technology patent applications. This initiative allows the identification of new technologies, stimulating their licensing and encouraging innovation in the country.

In this field, the workshop served to disseminate the use of the priority review in the green technologies sector to 120 representatives of private initiatives. In addition to the representatives of INPI, which is in charge of presenting the priority programme for green patents, there was a national expert from the private initiative who presented the case of his success in obtaining patents through the programme.

The action developed jointly by INPI and the EUROCLIMA+ cooperation programme of the European Union, aims to make green patents one of the mechanisms Brazil can use to address its commitments under the Paris Agreement (NDC).

Within the framework of this support, other activities were carried out previously, such as the meeting for "Identification of training needs for climate change adaptation and mitigation" which led to the training of INPI patent examiners in September and November 2018 with the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office (OEPM)  as the transferring institution; and the holding of a workshop in June 2019 focused on the construction of a national strategy for the management and dissemination of priority Green Patents, which was presented for analysis by the Ministry of Economy, the agency that oversees INPI.
