The goal of the events was to enhance the capacity of the Indian productive sector to compete in different markets at local, regional, national or international level. In relation to this, the specific objectives were twofold: (i) to provide further specialised training and sharing experience with the Indian legal community, such as IP advisors and attorneys, in addition to GI producers, (ii) to contribute to their capacity to provide expertise to the business community, and in particular, to GI producers.

  1. The EU GI system including quality and control standards.
