ASEAN IPR SME Helpdesk Train-the-Trainer Seminar
ASEAN IPR SME Helpdesk Regional Launch,
The ASEAN IPR SME Helpdesk will be officially launched on 29 April 2013 in Brussels, Belgium. The project is co-funded by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry under the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) and will last until August 2014. The project supports European Union (EU) Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to both protect and enforce their Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in or relating to the ten countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). During the launch event, the Helpdesk team will present the Helpdesk’s plans for 2013 and provide an introduction to the IPR landscape in South-East Asia. For more details, please click here.
With an increasingly skilled workforce and attractive business environment, more and more European companies are expanding into the ASEAN region. To make the most of the opportunities available, European small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) need to ensure their intellectual property rights (IPR) are protected and enforceable in the ASEAN countries they conduct business with.
This annual forum organised by the European Patent Office serves as a regular platform for discussion on patent information needs in Asia. During this 3-day long event, the participants will have a chance to obtain an overview of the latest developments in Asian patent data. The ASEAN IPR SME Helpdesk expert Patrice Vidon will give a presentation introducing services that the Helpdesk can provide to the European SMEs operating in South-East Asian countries. Additionally, there will be ample opportunity to network with experts from Asia and Europe. For more details, please click here.
The ASEAN IPR SME Helpdesk will be hosting its opening webinar to introduce strategies European Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) can use to protect and enforce their intellectual property rights in ASEAN countries. More details to follow soon, watch this space!
