STRATEGIC GOAL V WORLD REFERENCE SOURCE FOR IP INFORMATION AND ANALYSIS


WIPO is the generator and repository of outstanding collections of technology disclosures, brand data, and technical and legal IP information. These collections provide a window onto what is happening in important sectors of the economy and in the IP system. They are of immense value to policy-makers; industry, business and other users of the IP system; and the interested public. That value has also been recognized in the Development Agenda, where there is strong demand for the Organization to provide empirical economic analysis and studies.

The value of WIPO’s data reference collections, however, depends upon the collections being accurate, upto-date and responsive to the needs of stakeholders, as well as freely and universally accessible. WIPO is in a unique position to serve as a host and portal to the world’s most comprehensive and valuable collections of IP information. Under this strategic goal, WIPO would strive to realize the potential of that unique position.

PROGRAM 16 ECONOMICS AND STATISTICS


PLANNING CONTEXT




  1. As the recovery of the world economy continues at an uneven pace, innovation will remain essential in sustaining long-term growth and improving human development. Fortunately, a changing innovation landscape offers new opportunities for harnessing knowledge for societies’ benefit. In particular, countries are investing more resources than ever before in the knowledge economy, and new sources of innovation have emerged – especially in Asia. However, despite rapid economic growth in certain developing countries, a significant share of the world’s population continues to live in poverty and has not been able to harness knowledge for economic prosperity.




  1. Against this background, the global IP system faces significant challenges. Policymakers need to respond to an ever rising demand for IP rights, new technologies and business models and the need for fostering an international framework that promotes balanced IP protection. For policymakers in developing countries special challenges exist in tailoring IP policy to the needs of their economies, taking into account different resource endowments and different industrial structures.




  1. Thus, there are two objectives: first, to provide accurate, comprehensive and timely statistical information on the performance of the IP system worldwide; and second, to provide high quality empirical analysis in support of evidence-based policymaking.

IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGIES




  1. In the area of IP statistics, WIPO works with national and regional IP offices in collecting data on IP activity worldwide through its annual statistics survey. The statistics on the WIPO-administered filing treaties are generated in-house. WIPO’s statistical flagship publication – the World Intellectual Property Indicators – will continue to summarize the main statistical trends in the area of patents, utility models, trademarks, industrial designs and plant varieties. Separate statistical publications will report on the performance of the PCT, Madrid, and the Hague systems. The IP Statistics Data Center will continue to make available all statistics to users worldwide. In light of the priorities identified above, the Program will make special efforts to collect and report new statistics on geographical indications and copyright-related activities and to further improve the user-friendliness of WIPO statistics.




  1. In the area of economic analysis, WIPO will continue to be a co-publisher of the Global Innovation Index (GII), seeking to contribute to the measurement of innovation and providing policymakers with a tool to benchmark innovation performance. WIPO’s World Intellectual Property Report series will equally continue, seeking to explore new themes and deepen the analysis on global IP topics provided to date. In addition, the Program will seek to establish a new line of research on policy and performance in the creative economy.




  1. As in the past, the Program will stand ready to respond to requests for economic analysis from WIPO committees. Finally, the study work in developing countries, as part of a DA project, will be extended to four to five new countries. Responding to the needs of Member States, these studies will continue to be informed by the relevant DA Recommendations, especially Recommendations 34, 35, 37, and 39, and provide empirical input into understanding the economic effects of different IP policy choices.




  1. To promote high quality economic analysis and to maximize synergies, WIPO will draw on its wide international network of academic economists and continue to coordinate the global network of IP office economists.




  1. Program 16 collaborates primarily with other Programs as illustrated below:

MAJOR RISKS AND MITIGATION STRATEGIES


Risk

Mitigation

Publication of incomplete statistical information (WIPI).

Provide sufficient time for response, and contribute to building statistical capacity at the national level.

WIPO publications misreport statistical data or reflect analytical shortcomings.

Control mechanisms are instituted that identify data inconsistencies during the collection of IP statistics; all statistical publications are carefully reviewed by statistical experts and relevant WIPO sectors; all analytical publications are externally peer reviewed.

RESOURCES FOR PROGRAM 16




  1. The increase in both personnel and non-personnel resources under Expected Result V.1 (Wider and better use of WIPO IP Statistical information) reflects strengthened efforts for the provision of statistical information on the performance of the IP system worldwide in particular for the collection and report of new statistics on geographical indications and copyright.




  1. Increased personnel and non-personnel resources under Expected Result V.2 (Wider and better use of WIPO economic analysis) illustrate the enhanced research commitments notably on policy and performance in the creative industries and on studies under the DA project IP & Socio-Economic Development.
