IP network

Cooperation is a mandate and a mission at the EUIPO.

The IP world is ever more interlinked and interconnected, so to help our customers and to strengthen the global IP framework, we cooperate and collaborate with partners both in the EU and internationally.

 

Our network is built through European cooperation in the area of tools and services, and at international level throughout the world.

 

Our IP network encompasses our European partners in the European Union Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN); the national and regional intellectual property offices of the EU. Together, we build advanced tools and services for our customers, and we develop and implement common practices.

At international level, we implement a set of EU-funded projects for the European Commission in China, South-East Asia (the IPKey South-East Asia and the Arise+IPR projects), Latin America, the Caribbean, Georgia and Africa.

We also cooperate bilaterally with other countries and regions around the world, as well as with international forums like TM5 and ID5.

Our Institutional Relations function handles all interactions between our major partners: EU institutions; national and regional IP offices of the Member States of the EU; and user associations. It is here that the Secretariat of the Management Board and Budget Committee, our governing bodies, is based. The Institutional Relations function also handles the Liaison Meetings, and is in charge of the two-way information flow between the EUIPO and its stakeholders through a number of bilateral and ad-hoc events.

Through the European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights, transferred to the EUIPO in 2012 under Regulation (EU) No 386/2012, the Office coordinates a number of pan-European networks, including the IP in Education Network, the European Intellectual Property Prosecutors’ Network and the Judges’ Network. Cooperation is also carried out with EU agencies and international bodies like Europol, Eurojust, CEPOL, the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI), the European Patent Office (EPO) and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

European Cooperation: new online services in Greece

 

The Industrial Property Organisation in Greece (OBI), with the support of the EUIPO’s European Cooperation Service, has improved the service it provides to its users with the launch of a new online platform to file applications for design registrations electronically.

The new front office platform, available via the OBI website, now allows users to take advantage of a set of new features, such as:

  • user authentication, using a custom authentication mechanism provided by the Greek General Secretariat of Information Systems for Public Administration (GSIS / taxisnet);
  • integration with an external e-payment system, supported by one of Greece’s 4 primary banks;
  • seamless integration with the existing OBI back office system for designs;
  • compliance with General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679.

The new platform will allow significant gains in efficiency and an improved user experience, and will help modernise the filing of applications for design registrations in Greece.

These digital service improvements became available on 1st December 2020.

The launch at OBI is another successful implementation of the Software Package, a set of tools developed and offered by the EUIPO to the EU’s national and regional intellectual property offices.

This release is the result of work carried out by the EUIPO and its partners within the framework of the European cooperation projects. These projects support the intellectual property offices in developing more efficient, reliable and user-friendly tools and services for trade marks and designs within the European Union Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN).
