The BPTO and APEX will map the IP of Brazilian companies

A broad mapping and diagnosis of the current use of the Intellectual Property (IP) system by companies supported by Apex-Brasil is the first action resulting from the partnership between the BPTO and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil). The partnership provides for activities such as IP training for entrepreneurs in export sectors and for multiplying agents at Apex-Brasil; the holding of e-mentoring for companies focused on the strategic use of the IP system; joint participation in events and international business and innovation rounds; stimulating the use of Geographical Indications to increase the competitiveness of Brazilian products in the international market; and the promotion of academic activities on the interface between intellectual property and foreign trade, as strategic factors for improving the competitiveness of Brazilian companies.
