CARIFORUM Intellectual Property Rights and Innovation
Innovation and creativity are the core drivers of sustainable economic development, and intellectual property rights are the key tools to generate value from intangible assets.
A strong enabling environment for IP creation, protection, administration and enforcement will boost the participation of CARIFORUM countries in the world economy, and stimulate innovation and competitiveness of the private sector.
Bringing together stakeholders from the CARIFORUM countries, from the European Union, and relevant international organisations, our main goal is to:
- create stronger IP offices offering high quality, state of the art services to users
- ensure availability of effective IPR enforcement mechanisms
- contribute to the development of a sustainable and innovative private sector
- make doing business between the EU and CARIFORUM, and particularly within the CARIFORUM region easier.
