IPR Transatlantic Collaboration

IPR Transatlantic Collaboration

To re-enforce American and European cooperation and underscore the importance of intellectual property rights and the fight against counterfeiting and piracy, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Association of European Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Austria Wirtschaftsservice, the Technopolis Group Austria, AT Consult, and the Austrian Institute for SME Research have joined forces in a new European Union-supported project entitled “Transatlantic IPR Collaboration”. The project aims to benchmark IPR-related policies and practices between the EU and the United States and will make policy recommendations to EU and US authorities.  It is within this framework that these organizations are organizing a two-day conference on “U.S. and EU Approaches to Protecting IP” and “Communicating the Value of IP”.  At the conference, the preliminary results of a study on Transatlantic approaches to IP will be presented for debate and discussion.
