Patent applications recognized in Israel will be accepted internationally as well

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), a specialized agency of the United Nations, has recently recognized Israel as an international center for the search and testing of patents.  Israel will be added to the list of 15 leading countries in this field.

The decision, which constitutes an international recognition of Israel’s abilities in the field of technology, will help promote important international projects, allow groups outside of Israel to apply for patent testing in Israel and, upon approval, receive international recognition for the patents.
