How TISC Network Works

How TISC Network Works

The Technology and Innovation Support Center (TISC) program, run by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), is designed to give innovators easy access to high quality technology information and related services. WIPO works with member states to support the establishment and operation of TISCs. Formally, a service level agreement is signed between WIPO and national IP office of the member state outlining the detail of project indicators and responsibilities of both parties.

At national level the TISC networks are managed by Intellectual Property Offices. The National IP office coordinates with relevant institute/ministries to establish TISC. Broadly, following institutes serves as Host Institutes of TISC:
  • International and Regional Patent Offices
  • Universities and Academic Institutions
  • Science and Research Centers
  • Local and Regional Technoparks
  • Chambers of Commerce
  • Other Public Institutions of similar type
