The AL-INVmentor initiative provides specialised in-person training and tailored capacity building workshops for selected producer groups in their places of origin to give them the tools to better leverage their intellectual property rights (IPR). The initiative focuses on geographical indications (GIs) and other IPRs and, when necessary, also supports them to comply with regulations under the umbrella of the European Union’s (EU) Green Deal to facilitate access to European markets. Topics covered can include marketing, governance, strategy, sustainability, control strategies and technical support in the development of applications for protection and recognition as GIs under national legislation.
