Intellectual Property (IP) in China - are you protected?


Enterprise Europe Network Midlands


Birmingham Chamber Of Commerce
75 Harborne Road, Birmingham B15 3DH
United Kingdom

Doing Business in China is both an exciting and vibrant experience for many, offering prospects for business which range from the design and manufacture of new products, right through to research, development and collaboration on joint initiatives. However, while China can offer these incredible opportunities for advancement, working in this market with new and innovative products can be a challenge. New innovation will inevitably bring the question of intellectual property and how to protect it, especially in a lively market such as China.

In partnership with the China IPR (Intellectual property rights) SME Helpdesk, the official EU support agency for IP in China, the Enterprise Europe Network is pleased to invite you to this event, to support and assist your market activities in China. This will consist of the following:


Key Themes

An overview of the IP landscape in China

Assessing the value of your IP

Practical tips on what to consider when attending trade fairs (in terms of IP)

Enforcement & prevention strategies in China

Patents, utility models, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets & technology transfers
