Madrid and Paris, April 20, 2021 – Capgemini Invent in Spain announced today that it has been awarded by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) a one-year framework contract renewable for up to three additional one-year periods. The consortium led from Spain by Capgemini Invent, and including Uni Systems, will support EUIPO in providing general consultancy, audits, studies and project management services.
The consulting services provided by the consortium are in the following areas:
- General consultancy, including the provision of customized, individual, non-standard information and/or advice for high-level and strategic matters that are related to the areas of competence and tasks of EUIPO.
- Audit, which aims at providing independent assurance that EUIPO’s risk management, governance and internal control processes are operating effectively. They will result in analyses, appraisals, recommendations, advice and information concerning the activities reviewed.
- Studies, including the investigation and analysis of a subject matter related to core activities of EUIPO, intellectual property matters, or to a topic supporting the work of the office.
The EUIPO is a decentralized agency of the EU, based in Alicante, Spain. It manages the registration of the European Union trademark (EUTM) and the registered Community design (RCD), both of which provide intellectual property protection in all EU Member States.
“We are proud to be accompanying EUIPO in its project management over the coming years. EUIPO plays a key role in safeguarding intellectual property, and is therefore, instrumental in enabling and driving innovation across the European Union,” says Laurent Perea, Managing Director of Capgemini Invent in Spain.
