Incentivizing Green Technology
Inventions and Innovation

Join us for an enriching discussion on how to improve and expand accelerated examination programs for patents. Complementary policies that encourage rapid innovation of green inventions with a common goal of protecting the global society from the imminent and long-term risks of climate change will be discussed.
