Intellectual Property Rights (IPR)

World Intellectual Property Organization’s Global Innovation Index successively ranks Denmark among the top 10 most innovative countries of the world. Sustainable innovation, rigorous research and development as well as a robust IP ecosystem play an important role in the Danish economy and society.

India and Denmark are working towards building a long-term technical partnership in the field of Intellectual Property Rights. Through this cooperation between the Danish Patent and Trademark Office and the Indian Patent Office, both countries are committed to sharing best practices and building mutual capacities in areas such as quality management systems, commercialization of IP and awareness raising and outreach. India, with its large demography and developmental trajectory, can play a vital role in realizing the global goals and curb climate change. Technology transfer, collaborative innovation as well as export of green tech solutions are central to realising this ambition, which makes the existence of a robust Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) system a pre-requisite. Therefore, the Indo-Danish partnership on IPR will not only accelerate India’s economic development but also significantly contribute to the aims of the Green Strategic Partnership by promoting India’s green transition.
