US Patent Office Launches Patents for Humanity Challenge

US Patent Office Launches Patents for Humanity Challenge

The program advances the president’s global development agenda by rewarding companies who bring life-saving technologies to underserved people of the world, while showing how patents are an integral part of tackling the world’s challenges.
