Action Plan on IP Published by European Commission


On November 25, 2020, the European Commission published its new Action Plan on Intellectual Property, which sets out five key areas for development over the coming years.

The Action Plan aims
- to improve the protection of IP;
- to boost the uptake of IP by SMEs;
- to facilitate the sharing of IP to increase the technological uptake in the industry;
- to fight counterfeiting and improve the enforcement of IP rights
- and to promote a global level playing field.

Among the initiatives planned are modernising EU design protection and strengthening the protection of agricultural geographical indications (GIs) while considering the feasibility of a GI protection system for non-agricultural products at EU level. Further, actions are included to help SMEs leverage their IP portfolios.
