New Country Special Series: Intellectual Property (IP) in Croatia

With the aim of increasing the awareness of IP and the support services of the European IPR Helpdesk among SMEs in specific European regions, the team has launched a new online publication series: the so called 'IP Country Specials'. Featuring interviews, case studies and infographics, this new series will put a spotlight on key facts, 'hot topics' and challenges related to IP and innovation in selected European countries. The series starts off with a Special on IP in Croatia.

This special consists of an introductory overview on the Croatian IP landscape as well as an unreleased case study on the learnings of a Croatian SME going international. The package is rounded off by an interview with the Croatian European IPR Helpdesk ambassadors Ivan Stefanic and Vedran Đidara sharing some insights and experiences on current IP issues and challenges faced by innovators in their country. The European IPR Helpdesk invites all interested stakeholders, institutions and initiatives to share the Special via their channels and networks. More IP Country Specials are scheduled for publication within the coming months. The Country Special “IP in Croatia” can be accessed via the following link: More information on the European IPR Helpdesk Ambassador scheme can be found here: About the European IPR Helpdesk The European IPR Helpdesk is a project funded by the European Commission under Grant Agreement No 641474.
