Focal points gain access to customizable digital infrastructure, the IAP Online Platform, to implement the program. This tool allows potential inventors to apply to the program from anywhere at any time and can include custom questions at the request of a participating country. It also gives focal points a dashboard to manage the program and run metrics. Our partners can implement the IAP quickly, leveraging fully automated communications, allowing focal points to focus on value added interactions with inventors and volunteers.
