International Cooperation

Rospatent carries out an ongoing work to effectively represent interests of the Russian Federation in the area of cooperation with foreign states, international organizations, and associations, as well as to promote the development of the legal and regulatory frameworks.

Rospatent actively works with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and a wide range of other global international organizations to strengthen the Intellectual Property (IP) rights system all around the world. Rospatent actively uses the WIPO platform to promote Russian initiatives related to the digitalization of intellectual property at the international level.

Multilateral cooperation is implemented through other international organizations and associations such as the World Trade Organization (WTO), and BRICS. Great attention is paid to the chairmanship of Russia in BRICS in 2020.

Rospatent is engaged in a wide range of activities with the CIS countries, the European Patent Office (EPO), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), and the Eurasian Economic Union.
