Brazil: Green Patents pilot program to be extended

INPI’s report that “Aiming to stimulate scientific research and development of sustainable technologies in Brazil, the pilot program Patent Greens will be extended by one year.”

I love this green patents...
This new stage started on last week -April 18 and will end on April 17, 2014. It is announced that the program “will have broader criteria”. For example, the earlier Green Patent pilot only considered the deposit and requests made from January 2011. This time, the deposit and requests to be considered may be from any year IF it has not already been technically examined.
In less than a year INPI granted three green patents, the first one reported here.
