The European IPR Helpdesk has started this New Year 2016 with two fresh features on the website: From now on the team will regularly provide users with so-called “IP Specials” that will take a closer look at IP issues in a particular business sector or a European Member State. Those thematic packages may include for instance interviews, case studies or fact sheets. The new series has been kicked off with a special on "IP in the Bio-Sector".

Additionally, the European IPR Helpdesk has opened a new section called “IP and Innovation in the Spotlight” offering articles, interviews, success stories, Helpline cases as well as news from the team and the world of IP in an online magazine way.

Both new formats aim to give users additional access to the broad range of IP-related content that the European IPR Helpdesk team constantly develops.
