on Mar 2, 2017 1:53:20 PM By | Simon Webster | CEO Talk Track

According to a report by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), a gender balance in Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) applications may not be achieved until 2080. The 2016 “Economic research working paper no. 33, identifying the gender of PCT inventors” report analysed 6.2 million named inventors from 182 different countries and found that the number of women filing PCT applications, has improved in recent years.
