The ASIPI, “Asociación Interamericana de Propiedad Intelectual" (Inter-American Association of Intellectual Property, http://www.asipi.org/en ), a non-for-profit organization of intellectual property specialists, and oriGIn have partnered to increase cooperation on GIs.
We will exchange information on GIs and related issues with ASIPI as well as promote within our respective networks initiatives in favour of GIs. The cooperation will also foster mutual support in the organization of seminars and other GI-related events. For oriGIn, this partnership is strategic to further promote the GI concept in the Americas.
This is part of a policy which, over the years, have seen oriGIn developing strategic partnerships with public and private institutions (universities, laws firms, International Organizations, NGOs, etc.) around the world: http://www.origin-gi.com/partnerships.html
