Contact Point on Technical and Financial Cooperation - Search

At its meeting in July 1996, the TRIPS Council agreed that each developed country Member should notify a contact point for technical cooperation on TRIPS, in particular for the exchange of information between donors and recipients of technical assistance.

This page allows you to browse the contact points established by developed country Members for providing technical and financial cooperation for developing and least-developed country Members with regards to the implementation of the TRIPS Agreement. You can consult search results on screen, download and print them in Excel format. You can also download individual documents.

Lists of Members having submitted contact points are available here.
