Specialised Training on Industrial Designs

Thursday, December 1, 2016

In December 2016 three specialised training sessions targeting attorneys and advisors will take place throughout India. One  EUIPO design expert will hold the sessions and will be using practical examples throughout. CGPDTM design expertise will also be available.

This action will focuse on enhancing the capacity of the Indian productive sector to develop and protect their IP rights, aiming at enhancing the capacity of attorneys and IP advisors to play an active role in developing a broader IP-intensive business community in India, especially as regards SMEs.

The topics that will be discussed refer to the Registered Community Design (RCD) as well as registration and protection of designs in India. Moreover, challenges in design registration and protection and the link to other rights will be tackled by the EUIPO expert. The IPC-EUI expert will give an overview of IP tools.

The output will serve as a basis for the creation of a knowledgeable IP support community that will be in a position to provide expertise to the Indian business community. This action will also contribute to set up training modules and reference material for both a specialised and less specialised audience by providing easily accessible, free and tailor-made information.
