In 2013, Caribbean Export, in collaboration with the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) hosted a workshop entitled, “The Use of Intellectual Property as a Tool for Business/Export Enhancement.”
The workshop revealed the fact that many members of the private sector within the Region, including the business support organizations, were not necessarily familiar with intellectual property tools in general, or how such tools may be used to assist their businesses in reaching their full potential and improving their capacity to export and methods of registering their intellectual property within their jurisdiction and beyond. Furthermore, information on the registration processes within and across the region were not readily available and remains scattered.
The overall objective of this consultancy is to design a roadmap to allow for CARIFORUM firms to become familiar with the various tools for protecting and leveraging intellectual property as well as the registration requirements available in the region related to Intellectual Property Rights.
Interested and suitably qualified candidates are required to submit a project proposal (technical and financial) as well as a resume addressed to:
