Georgia’s Intellectual Property Agency continues to operate thanks to U.S. Government assistance project (April 13)

 

Georgia’s Intellectual Property Agency, Sakpatenti, has been working without interruption thanks to a U.S. Government assistance project, which started in 2017. The USAID-funded project, called e-Governance, helped Sakpatenti create a completely new database, carry out electronic proceedings, and establish a new website, which is also integrated with the new database and a module of electronic document circulation.

As a result, Sakpatenti is able to receive and process filed applications for all intellectual property objects electronically, and applicants are able to monitor filed application proceedings online.
