Contract notice: Collection of National Key Enforcement Judgments related to IPR


 

The EUIPO is launching a tender procedure to consolidate and expand the collection of national key enforcement judgments related to intellectual property rights (IPR) in the EU Member States.

In 2014, the EUIPO, through the Observatory, started a collection of national key enforcement judgments related to IPRs from the EU Member States. This activity is implemented in cooperation with participating national IP offices (IPOs) from the EU Member States. Not all the Member States could be involved in the activity, leaving important gaps in the project.

The main objective of this tender is to consolidate and expand the collection of national key enforcement judgments to cover all Member States.

The provider will assist in the collection of key judgments related to the enforcement of IPRs rendered by national courts to be included in the EUIPO’s eSearch Case Law database.

The main tasks of this activity are the following:

  • firstly, to provide key enforcement judgments from non-participating Member States and from participating Member States that are no longer able to provide them;
  • secondly, to update information on key enforcement judgments from non-participating Member States collected internally by the EUIPO.

The contractor should be able to coordinate the collection of case-law from different EU Member States and to provide a consolidated contribution to the EUIPO.

A direct contract with a duration of four years is envisaged. The maximum volume of the contract is EUR 357 000.

The deadline for submissions of offers is 28/10/2020 at 13.00 (CET time).
