Serbia to Establish Center for IP Information and Education

May 12 2009 - 16:11

The Serbian Intellectual Property Office has recently launched a project for the opening of a center for information and education in the field of intellectual property, in cooperation with the European Commission and the European Patent Office (EPO).

According to the Serbian officials, the aim of the center will be to assist the IPO in raising general public awareness with respect to intellectual property and in developing professional capacities in the field of intellectual property.

Another goal of the center will be to help Serbia achieve the required level of intellectual property protection before joining the European Union. In that respect, the center will provide IP-related workshops and training.

The center will be located on the premises of the Serbian IPO, while the project is entirely financed by the European Commission and EPO. The project will last three years and it will be carried out in two phases:

  1. Establishment of the Center for IP Information and Education;
  2. Launch of Center’s activities.

Besides financial help, the European Commission and the EPO will also handle the logistics. Namely, they will provide the qualified individuals to hold IP workshops, as well as the necessary IT.
