Eurice welcomes leading IP and Innovation Stakeholders in new Brussels office
On the occasion of the official launch of the European IPR Helpdesk communication office on the 20th of June, we've been pleased to welcome more than 70 stakeholders from the European Commission and renowned key institutions in the field of intellectual property (IP) and innovation. We were honoured by the presence and active contributions of Jean Bergevin, Head of Unit Intellectual Property and Fight against Counterfeiting at DG Growth and Marco Malacarne, Head of Department A at the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) of the European Commission.
Both speakers outlined recent EU policies and trends in the field of IP enforcement within EU Internal Market strategies. A strong emphasis was put on the proper IP management in the EU innovation support activities managed by DG Growth as being in charge of promoting entrepreneurship and SME development in the EU.
