On August 7, the Market Supervision Administration of Qingdao West Coast New Area (QWCNA) held a publicity and promotion meeting of “Internet Service Platform for Intellectual Property Service Vouchers” and a signing ceremony for the first batch of service agencies. At the beginning of the meeting, it was announced that the IPwe platform, through a series of procedures including enterprise application, platform customization and expert assessment, has been successfully selected as a platform to implement this IP Service Voucher project. There are only two platforms selected.
At the meeting, over 10 high-level intellectual property and certification & accreditation agencies from Beijing, Chongqing and Qingdao officially signed the contracts to become the first group of service providers for the service vouchers. There will be hundreds to thousands of IP service agencies and law firms to apply to be a service provider on the IPwe platform in the coming days.
After the Shandong Province took the lead in integrating and launching the integrated policies of intellectual property rights, QWCNA is the first one to implement the intellectual property service vouchers among all the nation-level new areas in China, which arranges RMB 10 million Yuan each year for 5 consecutive years to support enterprises to purchase high-end intellectual property services from world-famous institutions at home and abroad.
