Support for awareness-raising activities about the value of intellectual property and the damages of counterfeiting and piracy GR/001/17 Closed!

Objectives

The general objective of the call for proposals is to raise awareness about the value, benefits of intellectual property as well as the damages caused by infringements of IP rights.

It aims to increase knowledge and to engage priority audiences to develop respect for IP, with a view to ultimately change people’s behaviour by reducing their purchase of counterfeits and their access of digital content from illegal sources.

The specific objectives of the call are to:

  1. Increase knowledge of the value of IP as a tool to protect creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship by providing concrete and objective knowledge about IP in this context and increasing knowledge on the damages of infringements.
  2. Engage priority audiences on these issues taking into account relevant leverage possibilities and especially how audiences expect to be addressed on these questions (non-patronising, objective and neutral) with the view to changing behaviour, reducing appeal for counterfeiting and piracy and/or reducing possibilities for counterfeiters and pirates.
