Towards 2020: European Cooperation in the EUIPN

The European Trade Mark and Design Network (ETMDN), envisaged in the EUIPO’s first Strategic Plan (2011-2015) was the result of a collaborative and cooperative effort between the Office and its national and regional office partners, supported by user associations and international organisations.

Under Strategic Plan 2016-2020, the work continues. Cooperation on IP within the EU became part of the core business of the EUIPO upon the entry into force of Regulation 2015/2424 on 23 March 2016. In the light of this new mandate, the European Trade Mark and Design Network was renamed the European Union Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN).

This cooperation has five strands. Each strand contains at least one project, which is supported by a working group comprising EU national and regional IP office experts, users, and, where relevant, experts from international organisations.
