It has been another positive year for oriGIn and GIs.

Important results were achieved in 2018, just to name a few:


  • We monitored and commented GIs laws around the world;
  • We raised awareness on the crucial debate concerning sustainability;
  • We attracted new members from several countries;
  • We campaigned for the entry into force of the Geneva Act of the Lisbon Agreement;
  • We set-up a legal entity in Brussels (oriGIn EU).
