Seminars to EU enforcement authorities
19 November 2019
The IP Enforcement Portal team participated in a series of seminars on intellectual property infringement last week in Greece.
The seminars were addressed exclusively to stakeholders from the Greek police, Greek port authorities and customs as well as to the Greek Financial and Economic Crime Unit (SDOE).
The different functions of the IP Enforcement Portal were presented, with special focus given to the global search function (where enforcement authorities can look for and find information on rights holders’ IPR, contact and product information), the suspicious case function (where enforcement authorities can send their suspicious cases to rights holders) and how to access the Virtual Training Centre (VTC) - (the portal providing IPR-related training content) via the IP Enforcement Portal.
Further training sessions for enforcement authorities on use of the IP Enforcement Portal will be organised in the coming months.
