Consultation on European Cooperation Projects

    In parallel to the ongoing consultation on the Strategic Plan (2016-2020), the Office is now launching a consultation on European Cooperation Projects.

    One of the objectives of the proposed Strategic Plan is to intensify network engagement, among others, by implementing a suite of projects of interest to the European Union and its Member States, so as to promote convergence of practices and tools in the field of trade marks and designs.

    The Office aims to gather views and suggestions from its stakeholders, as well as from the general public.

    This consultation will run from Tuesday 9 February to Tuesday 22 March 2016.

    The consultation is being launched to consider the full effects of the Regulation amending the EU trade mark, published on 24 December 2015, in particular by consulting user representatives during definition phase of the projects. More details, including the response form, are available here.

    More details, including the response form, are available on the dedicated European Cooperation web page.
