UNWE transforms its Intellectual Property Center into Institute of Intellectual Property and LeadershipThe Bulgarian University of National and World Economy transforms its Intellectual Property Center into Institute of Intellectual Property and Leadership

With a decision of the Academic board of the University for National and World Economy from July 10, 2013 the Intellectual Property Center was transformed into Institute of Intellectual Property and Leadership

The Intellectual Property Center was established by the Academic board on 01.09.2003 as the main service unit of the University of National and World Economy. It was opened by the President of Bulgaria Mr. Georgi Parvanov, the Director-General of the World Intellectual Property Organization, Dr. Kamil Idris and the Minister of Education Dr. Igor Damyanov.

The center works as information and consultation center providing services for researchers, students, faculty, staff, and all stakeholders in the business and non-profit organizations in the country and abroad on various issues related to intellectual property. The aim of the Centre is to provide information on:
• the nature of the system of intellectual property protection;

• opportunities to protect scientific research results as objects of intellectual property;

• opportunities for economic exploitation of scientific research products;

• trends in the development of the intellectual property system;

• national and international initiatives in the field of intellectual property.

It is agreed that the Center shall become a branch of the World Academy of Intellectual Property, in accordance with which the Academy will provide MA educational programs in intellectual property that could be distance learning programs.

There will be a change of the website address of the IP center.
We will observe the updates and publish the new information on our pages.

    The new EU trade mark Regulation enters into force on March 23rd. As a result, the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) will change its name to the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

    The amending Regulation also revises the fees payable to the Office, including an overall reduction in their amounts, particularly in the case of trade mark renewal fees. On 23.3. 2016, the Office’s online application forms and fee calculator will be automatically updated to reflect the new system.
    From its base in Alicante, Spain, OHIM has processed more than 1.3 million Community trade mark applications in 23 EU languages, from nearly every country and region in the world, since 1996.

    The Amending Regulation was published on 24 December 2015 and is part of the EU trade mark reform legislative package that also includes the replacement of the existing EU Trade Mark Directive (Directive 2008/95/EC of the European Parliament and the Council).

    OHIM is the EU’s largest decentralised agency. It is entirely self-financed, receiving no funding from the EU Budget. As well as managing the Community trade mark and the registered Community design (RCD), it works in collaboration with the EU national and regional IP offices to build a stronger IP system across the EU for the benefit of users.
