In a bid to help international investors and entrepreneurs succeed in the Philippines, the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) via the ARISE+ IPR program and the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL) will be holding a webinar to guide them in safeguarding their intellectual property (IP) assets in the country.
The “Seminar on IP Services and Tools to Businesses in the Philippines,” is part of the EU-funded ARISE+ IPR program to raise awareness on the support and services offered by IP Offices in ASEAN for the benefit of those doing business in the region.
Targeting international and local entrepreneurs, the virtual event will provide essential information on the Philippines’ IP system, the Office’s role in helping businesses grow through their IP assets and the programs and services it offers, including Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), which could benefit MSMEs.
Atty. Mary Grace Cruz-Yap, Director IV of the Documentation, Information and Technology Transfer Bureau, will be presenting the first session, “Introduction about the IP Office of the Philippines and its Support to Businesses.” Afterwards, Atty. Christine Pangilinan-Canlapan, Director III of the Bureau of Legal Affairs, will present in the second session an “Introduction about IPOPHL’s ADR Services.”
Following the presentations, the session “Dialogue with the Businesses” will serve as a platform for businesses to ask questions, and share their comments and suggestions on IPOPHL’s presentations.
The “Seminar on IP Services and Tools to Businesses in the Philippines” will take place on October 27, 2021 at 14:00-16:30 (GMT+8, Manila time) / 08:00-10:30 (GMT+2, CEST) via the Zoom platform. Register now at https://bit.ly/3gPzszV.
