ARISE Plus Intellectual Property Rights (ARISE + IPR) is a five-year, EUR 5.5 million programme funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). The programme supports regional integration through intellectual property (IP) cooperation and aims to upgrade the IP systems for creation, protection, utilisation, administration and enforcement, in line with international best practices and standards and with the strategic objectives laid out in the ASEAN IPR Action Plan 2016-2025.

The main aims of ARISE + IPR are to:

  • Enhance regional IP platforms and strengthen the capacity of ASEAN IP Offices to improve their capacity to deliver timely, quality, and accessible trademark and design services to stakeholders, particularly the business community.
  • Improve participation of ASEAN Member States in global IP protection systems and relevant IP treaties.
  • Increase awareness of the importance of IP protection in ASEAN society and improve the capacity of the productive sector to create, protect, utilise, commercialise and enforce IP rights.
  • Strengthen the capacity of the IP administrations in Cambodia, Lao PDR and Myanmar to promote domestic IP rights and innovation.

The key programme partners are the ASEAN IP Offices and the ASEAN Secretariat, with target beneficiaries including IP officials, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), the agricultural sector, producers’ associations, the judiciary, enforcement agencies, customs agencies, IP professionals, and the general ASEAN populace. ARISE + IPR focuses on trademarks, industrial designs, geographical indications (GIs), and enforcement.
