It includes the identification of strategically valuable IP, development of IP strategies, the use of patent information for decision-making processes, IP portfolio management, IP cost planning, licensing and enforcement as well as  freedom-to-operate analysis. The sessions are particularly suitable for staff in small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) coming to IP management from a background in, for example, R&D, business development or general management.

Start of Visegrad Patent Institute

The Visegrad Patent Institute starts its operation on July 1st 2016

Read more

The Visegrad Patent Institute (VPI) is an intergovernmental organization for cooperation in the field of patents established by the four Visegrad countries: the Czech Republic, Hungary, the Republic of Poland and the Slovak Republic (V4 countries).  The VPI was appointed as an International Searching Authority (ISA) and International Preliminary Examining Authority (IPEA) under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) in order to attain a wide range of important objectives at various (global, European, regional and national) levels. The VPI fills a territorial gap within the global system of the PCT, acting as an International Authority for Central and Eastern Europe. It is noteworthy that in WIPO, the Group of Central European and Baltic States is the only regional group without a functioning International Authority under the PCT. The VPI also makes up for the missing link in the network of European PCT authorities. Therefore, the VPI is intended to support the development and usefulness of the PCT system by adding further competent resources to those already available, especially in respect of a region currently without its own International Authority in place.  The structure of the VPI follows the existing successful model of the Nordic Patent Institute. Thus, the governance of the VPI as an intergovernmental organization is ensured by its Administrative Board composed of the representatives of the Contracting States, while the VPI’s Secretariat, headed by the Director, is responsible for the organization, day-to-day management and administrative support of the VPI’s work.

Estonia helps to develop Central Asian intellectual property

The Estonian Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer Centre
Read more

Experts from the Estonian Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer Centre (EIPTTC) are helping to develop both the understanding and the use of intellectual property in Central Asia. Being a success story among the ex-Soviet countries, Estonia has a wealth of experience and knowledge to share. Today in Kyrgyzstan EIPTTC experts are giving a lecture to different members of faculty from Kyrgyzstan universities. Kyrgyzstan hopes to implement the same kind of intellectual property study program in its schools and universities as in Estonia. After almost three years of successful cooperation, the Kyrgyzstan government based many points of their intellectual property guide plan on knowledge gained from EIPTTC. For EIPTTC experts it is a reward for great amount of work. „We have been active in Central Asia for years and it is good to see the progress, that has occurred over that time. We have had over a dozen visits, lectures and workshops in Kyrgyzstan and they have been eager learners“ says the director of EIPTTC, Mr. Marius Kuningas. In addition to Kyrgyzstan, EIPTTC have been active in other Central Asian countries as well, such as Tajikistan. „It is easier for us to share our experiences over there because of our shared history. We understand the process that they are going through, because we ourselves went through it 20 years ago. And because of it we can get our message across easier, than other western partners“ explains Mr. Kuningas.
