Apply to the Young Experts Program launched by WIPO

10/29/2021

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) announces the launch of a new Young Experts Program, to which those from the Republic of Moldova can also apply.

In its first edition, this 2-year program comes to train the next generation of global IP leaders to help build innovation ecosystems around the world. This in-depth training course aims, in addition to mastering the technical and policy aspects, at applying them in practice. The selectees will have the chance to work in various units within WIPO in Geneva, depending on the profile and interest expressed in the application.

“We are investing in young, talented persons from diverse backgrounds, giving them the exposure needed to understand IP at both a technical and strategic level, as well as nurture them in leadership and administrative skills. In this way, we are not only providing a pathway to an enriching career, but also allowing them to contribute to the future economic growth of their countries and regions,” said WIPO Director General Daren Tang.

The program provides a monthly stipend of 5000 Swiss francs (CHF) for selected young people, with medical and accident insurance coverage as well as part of the travel expenses to be covered by the organizers.

Among the selection criteria are:

  • Candidates must be 35 years of age or under at the time of application and at least 2 years of relevant experience;
  • Be available to participate in the program for the next two years (2022-2023).

The deadline for submitting files is November 19, 2021.
