As announced during our closing events in Beijing (21 April) and Brussels (2 June), the IP Key Action is coming to the end as of 30 June 2017. The new IP Key China cooperation action will be launched on 1 September 2017.

During the last 4 years, IP Key has successfully completed more than 250 activities engaging with over 6,000 government and business individuals on a wide range of IP topics.  Our activities have been very positively received by both European and Chinese stakeholders and we hope contributed to enhancing the Chinese IP system making it more efficient, fair and transparent as well as improving understanding of the Chinese and European IP system among the IP community.
