EUIPN Annual Cooperation Meeting 2021
The European Union Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN) Annual Cooperation Meeting was held online on 21-22 April 2021.
More than 80 participants from the Member States Intellectual Property Offices (MS IPOs) and the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP) attended the meeting, which coincided with the 10th anniversary of the European Union Intellectual Property Network.
The EUIPN Annual Cooperation Meeting is the forum where the EUIPO, the MS IPOs and the BOIP jointly identify how to best implement the European Cooperation Projects (ECPs). They do this within the existing strategic framework in line with the priorities of each IP Office. The aim of this cooperation is to benefit the users of the IP system. Most Offices were represented by their top management, allowing for a constructive exchange of views on strategic aspects of cooperation.
During the online sessions, participants also discussed the potential for creating synergies between the EUIPO and the IP Offices.
Thanks to the meeting, the EUIPO was also able to gauge the level of interest in participating and implementing further ECPs in the future. Ultimately, this will shape the 2022 annual work programme.
