Ukrainian National Office for Intellectual Property and Innovations (IP office) – the conceptually new approach to services in the intellectual property sphere.
We strive for the office to become a modern, professional, technological and transparent full-cycle hub for the creator, based on the principle of a «single-window». We work to ensure not only providing support for your idea and obtaining relevant patents and certificates, but also consulting on patent granting procedure and protection, search for an investor, and ways to commercialize your intellectual property.
Why IP Office?
Ukraine is completing the institutional reform of the IP sphere and the implementation of the relevant legislation. In particular, Law No. 703-IX, according to which the National Intellectual Property Authority was established.
Starting from November 8, 2022, due to the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 943 “Some Issues of the National Intellectual Property Authority” dated October 28, 2022, the State Organization “Ukrainian National Office for Intellectual Property and Innovations” (UANIPIO) is the entity performing the functions of the National Intellectual Property Authority.
The IP office functions as client-oriented state services, grounded on the principles of transparency, professionalism, decency and support. It is an ecosystem of intellectual property protection and innovation for a creative cluster, which in its turn will become an investment magnet.
The IP office has already launched a full-fledged Mediation Center. This is a new tool for the Ukrainian intellectual property system, which functions in all developed economies of the world. It will help the creator, inventor and business in resolving disputes.
New level of cooperation with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and professional representation of Ukraine’s interests at the WIPO;
