Plenary 1 – One of the highlights of this event’s first day is Plenary 1, featuring Júlio César Moreira, President of the BPTO; Juliana Ghizzi Pires, director of the Department of Intellectual Property Policy and Quality Infrastructure (DEPIQ – MDIC), and Gabriel Leonardos, President of ABPI, as the moderator. The presentation’s theme is the “Brazilian National Intellectual Property Plan.”

The plan is being developed within the Interministerial Group on Intellectual Property (GIPI) framework, in which ABPI takes part. In April, GIPI held its first ordinary meeting of the year to discuss the 2023-2025 Action Plan of the National Intellectual Property Strategy (ENPI).

Established in 2019, GIPI comprises representatives from 11 ministries and is tasked with coordinating the federal government’s actions on intellectual property. The focus is implementing public policies for the sector, in line with ENPI’s goals, which are executed through biennial Action Plans approved by GIPI.

Presided over by the Ministry of Development, Industry, Commerce, and Services (MDIC), GIPI strives to make the Brazilian intellectual property system more widely used by society, attracting investment in innovation and enhancing economic competitiveness.
