Local “Red PI” is organizing 2016 agenda
The Uruguayan Network of Intellectual Property (“Red Uruguaya de Propiedad Intelectual – Red PI”) was established in 2008 with the mission of creating, promoting and using tools and services related to Intellectual Property in order to facilitate the protection and incorporation of value to the local production of goods and services.
Three working groups were created under the Industrial Property Network (Red PI): Group 1, Awareness and training in IP; Group 2, Entrepreneurship; and Group 3, Debate on intellectual property. In February 2016, the first meetings for the three groups took place in order to develop their work plans and schedule of activities for this year.
Group 3, together with the Uruguayan PTO, organized a seminar to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), which took place on March 31, 2016.
