New platform for Ibero-American SMEs
On October 28, 2015, the Ibero-American IP platform CibePyme (www.cibepyme.com) was launched to provide Ibero-American small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with necessary information regarding the profitability of their innovation results.
At the moment, only the contents regarding the countries members of the Industrial Property Ibero-American Program (IBEPI www.ibepi.org) are available: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, México, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Spain and Uruguay.
Among the benefits are: free assistance on intellectual property matters, sharing of best practices, analysis of case studies of companies that have used the IP registration system, and awareness campaigns.
CibePyme’s site is in Spanish, only the microsites for Portugal and Brazil are in Portuguese. Soon there will also be an English site.
