oriGIn is the global alliance of GI groups and institutions dedicated to:
- Campaigning for robust protection of GI in national laws and international treaties; and
- Promoting a model of managing value chains which is poised to respond to the emerging economic, social and environmental challenges.
As of 2022 , oriGIn monitors once a year the major trends affecting, and the sentiment of, GIs worldwide through a survey sent to the associations representing some of the 25 most relevant GIs in terms of turnover and export (the survey it is not limited to oriGIn members).
The survey contains 10 questions which require no more than 10 minutes to be answered. No figures are to be provided (expect turn-over, export, jobs and GI area dimensions to give an idea of the overall impact of the 25 GIs sample), but only trends and expectations. Five core questions are permanently part of the survey (1 to 5); the second group of five questions (6 to 10) changes depending on the international economic scenario (the 2023 trend topic concerns high energy costs and inflation).
This initiative has the objective to strengthen the common identity of GIs worldwide as well as support the voice of GIs advocacy campaigns vis-à-vis policymakers.
