The European IPR Helpdesk recently launched a new cooperation scheme specifically designed to intensify collaboration with Enterprise Europe Network partners and to increase the outreach particularly towards SMEs at a national and regional level throughout Europe. The so-called “EU IPR Helpdesk Ambassador Programme” is based on the overall idea of appointing individual Network partners as local ambassadors. They will be granted privileged access to the Helpdesk’s information and training material in order to further support their local clients in dealing with IP.
In an open call the Helpdesk team is looking for official staff members of the Enterprise Europe Network (i.e. to be found in the EEN directory) with
- basic knowledge of IP/IPR, IP Management, Technology Transfer or Innovation Management
- and at least one year of experience in providing IP-related services to SMEs/innovation actors
Are you interested in joining forces with us, and do you meet these criteria? Then we look forward to receiving your application. The first application round will be closed on 31 January 2013. Please find out all the details on the scheme, the application and further selection process on: http://www.iprhelpdesk.eu/ambassadors.
