March 24, 2010, Wednesday/ 16:32:00
A European Union-funded twinning project was launched yesterday in a bid to improve the enforcement of industrial property rights legislation in Turkey.

Named “Supporting Turkey for Enhancing Implementation and Enforcement of Industrial Property Rights,” the project will be carried out jointly by the Turkish Patent Institute (TPE) and the German Foundation for International Legal Cooperation along with the Turkish Ministry of Justice and the Justice Academy of Turkey.

TPE head Habip Asan, speaking at the inauguration of the project, expressed his hope that this project would improve Turkey’s industrial property rights enforcement and help the country’s EU accession process. The project aims to establish legal cooperation with Europe in order to set the required technical capacity for implementation of related regulations. The EU allocated 1.2 million euros for the project, which is expected to last for 13 months.
