This website aims to further raise awareness on the role and importance of intellectual property in Kosovo. It explains basic concepts using different media, intends to educate through publications, and lists laws and stakeholders to summarize the whole ecosystem of the sector.
The website was developed by the EU-funded Support to the Intellectual Property Rights in Kosovo project. In other major activities, over a three-and-a-half year period, the project assisted in the process of preparation of the intellectual property system of Kosovo in line with the European Union standards. Kosovo now has a fully functional IP system, aligned with EU practices, which provides a solid framework for boosting economic transactions involving intellectual property rights.
