BEDA Event

Wide Open Doors Dialogue: Intellectual Property Rights


17:00 - 18:30 CET


Topic: Intellectual Property Rights (with EUIPO)
Chair: Anna Kohut-Jankó, Hungarian Design Council/ BEDA Board

This ODD session is planned as a Wide Open Doors Dialogue (open to the public), in collaboration with EUIPO – the European Union Intellectual Property Organisation.

BEDA is in close cooperation with EUIPO, taking part in their regular User Groups Meetings – thanks to Iiris Adenius, legal advisor of ORNAMO. Now we seek to widen the collaboration, foster a vital dialogue and explore the interests and needs of BEDA members as well as the designers represented by them. We have the opportunity to engage in a direct dialogue with the representatives of EUIPO, learn about the opportunities and support programmes the EUIPO is offering for SMEs, and the accessible tools related to IP awareness raising.
