International Intellectual Property Rights SME Helpdesks Stakeholders’ Meeting


The China, Latin America and South-East Asia IPR SME Helpdesks are holding their annual stakeholders’ meeting in Brussels. We are delighted to invite you to this event where you will hear about our latest developments, success stories and planned activities for 2017.

In addition to the Helpdesks, the event will include the participation of complementary key EU co-funded initiatives, such as Business Beyond Borders, that are also supporting EU SMEs in their internationalisation efforts. They will contribute to panel and roundtable discussions. Similar to previous editions, the meeting will be a key opportunity to have your say on the Helpdesks’ services and what can be done towards its continuous improvement in terms of support to businesses and collaboration with partner organisations and experts.

Finally, you will have an opportunity to network and share experiences with like-minded organisations at a Matchmaking Session. Attendees will include European SMEs already established in, or working with business entities in China, Latin America or South East Asia, and those with an interest in internationalising in these regions. General business support organisations and representatives from the European Commission and EASME will also be present.
