First prize for IP register in Blockchain

The IP register in Blockchain project has won first prize in the best application of tech in the public sector category at the Global Business Tech Awards. The award recognises technologies with tangible benefits.

The IP Register in Blockchain lays the foundation for distributed platform enabling services that benefit from secure, fast and direct connectivity between IP Offices and rights holders.

Blockchain makes data on IP rights readily available so that changes can be tracked.

EUIPO launched IP register in Blockchain in 2021. Last year, the Maltese government joined and in April this year the Estonian Patent Office also joined.

The three offices can now connect to TMview and DesignView through the blockchain with near-real-time data transfer speeds.

The Global Business Tech Awards jury said: “This winning entry really stood out to us all on the jury panel as it was well written, and clearly described a complex implementation of blockchain technology. The international scale that the EUIPO implemented is really impressive and we have confidence that it will clearly deliver significant efficiencies and value to companies globally.”
