The September issue has its main focus on the new European Cooperation at EUIPO. On September 12-15, over 100 experts from EU Intellectual property offices and user associations met to begin work on the European Cooperation Projects in EUIPO’s headquarters in Alicante.

These projects build on the success of the Cooperation Fund and the Convergence Programme. The Cooperation Fund was created in 2009 to enhance the user experience, support the provision of information and common tools, and provide better platforms for enforcement of IP rights.

Over time, joint teams of experts from the private and public sector succeeded in building 20 separate specialised projects, from search engines like DesignView to trade mark and design e-filing for national and regional EU IP offices. No less than 12 separate back offices were also built, and are expected to lead to significant gains in service provision to users by European Intellectual Property Offices.
