Consisting of five dedicated regional Helpdesk services covering China, Europe, Latin America, India and Southeast Asia, the IP Helpdesk caters to the individual needs of businesses operating in those markets. In addition, the regional Helpdesk for Europe specifically assists EU SMEs and researchers in dealing with IP issues in the context of EU-funded research and innovation projects.

Offering a broad range of informative material, a Helpline service as well as a diverse training calendar, the IP Helpdesk’s overall goal is to support IP capacity building along the full scale of IP practices: from awareness to strategic use and successful exploitation.
