BRIC and Prosur in INPI’s Agenda

INPI’s President in Brazil, Mr Jorge Avila will participate in the 'IP Week and Open Innovation' to be held in Brussels, Belgium, between 6th and 9th December. The event will discuss strategies, trends and challenges for innovation and intellectual property to contribute to the current scenario of global economic crisis.

INPI informs that “one of the highlights is the role of intellectual property in the so-called BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China)”. It added that it is included talks with South Africa on regards to international cooperation mechanisms, such as Prosur. With the participation of nine South American countries, Prosur accounts with the financial support of the Interamerican Development Bank (IDB). The project aims is improve services to users of the IP system and thus integrates IP offices in the region.
