The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) just announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the EUIPO and the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), which will set the ground for future relations and cooperation between the two organisations.
The IP cooperation between the EU and India dates back to 2015 when the EU-funded cooperation project, EU-India Intellectual Property Cooperation (IPC-EUI), was launched. The project kicked off the negotiations between the EUIPO and the Indian authorities, namely the Controller General of Patents, Designs and Trade Marks (CGPDTM) and the DPIIT, and ultimately led to the signing of a bilateral agreement.
