Call for Proposals for Intellectual Property Awareness-Raising Activities
Strands A and B:
The call for proposals in respect of these strands aims to raise awareness about the benefits of protecting intellectual property (IP) rights and about the damage caused by the infringement of these rights by highlighting the importance of IP in supporting creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship to young Europeans. It intends to increase knowledge and engage priority audiences to foster respect for IP, with a view to ultimately changing people’s behaviour: reducing their purchases of counterfeit goods or their accessing digital content from illegal sources.
The call for proposals in respect of this strand aims to raise awareness among SMEs about the benefits of creating, exploiting and protecting IP rights as part of their business’ activities and strategies. It intends to increase the numbers of SMEs taking advantage of the opportunities offered by IP rights through the building of knowledge and skills, while also seeking to involve influential partners. Overall, the core goal is to raise awareness of the benefits of IP rights for SMEs.

Deadline: 31 May 2023 at 13:00 (local time)
