European Cooperation: EUIPN Point of Contacts virtually met for an ECPs informative session

    On 1 July 2020, the EUIPN Point of Contacts virtual meeting gathered members of the EU Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN), with the aim to bring together national offices and gather feedback on the evaluation of the European Cooperation Projects (ECPs) under Strategic Plan 2020 and clarify any question about the process of implementation of the new ECPs under the Strategic Plan 2025 (SP2025).

    Coinciding with the entry into force of the new SP2025 on 1 July 2020, the meeting also focused on the main novelties and features of the recently launched ‘SNE Agency Portal’, the new mechanism in place for the process of identifying suitable candidates to be future seconded national experts.

    Another meeting of the EUIPN Point of Contacts will be scheduled before the end of 2020.
