Digital transformation, data and frontier technologies

01.07.2021 | Law and policy

The World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), headquartered in Geneva, is conducting a survey on the impact of frontier technologies on intellectual property (IP).

This questionnaire on frontier technologies and data begins with general questions about the use of frontier technologies and IP, and then moves on to focus on data as a driving force behind these technologies. The responses collected will be used to shape future discussions and work within the WIPO so that they are relevant and have as rapid and tangible an impact as possible for the business community. The survey will run until 31 August 2021.


The results will be discussed, in particular, at the next edition of the WIPO Conversation on IP and Frontier Technologies, which will be held online from 22-23 September 2021 (register here).


The Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property supports this initiative and encourages the Swiss business community to participate in this survey. We would be grateful if you could spread the word to your members and/or partners and share the questionnaire as widely as possible.


The ideal way to complete the questionnaire is online. A questionnaire in Word and PDF format is also attached for your information. If you use one of these latter formats, the questionnaire should be returned to the following address: frontier.technot shown@wipoto make life hard for spam
