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.
