The European IP Helpdesk’s Signposting Directory is a dynamic database providing access to key institutions and services active in the fields of intellectual property, research and/or business support, at EU level and at national and regional level in each of the 28 EU Member States as well as in the COSME countries. It includes contact details for national IP offices, national data protection offices, customs authorities, funding agencies, and more.

The Directory is a work in progress. It will be regularly expanded, and our team will endeavour to keep it up-to-date at all times. Should you have any question or suggestion in relation to this tool, do not hesitate to let us know, via our contact form
