European SMEs on the road to India. The importance of intellectual property protection

The European Commission has recently launched the India IP SME Helpdesk, a new initiative supporting SMEs from the EU and COSME associated countries to both protect and enforce their Intellectual Property (IP) rights in or relating to India.

The helpdesk provides jargon-free, first-line, confidential advice on IP and related issues, as well as training, online tools and resources – all offered free of charge.

The India IP SME Helpdesk brings extra benefits to organisations. By joining Collaborator Programme, cluster will be able to offer to their members training sessions on different IP aspects (trademark, copyright, patent, design) tailored to their needs and to the business sector in which they operate. SMEs will be supported by experts, who have long- term experience in IP issues related to the Indian market.
