    Opening up Data for Research on Ukraine: the Management of the IP Office participated in the event, organized by Max Planck Institute in Munich


    On May 13-14, 2024, Director of the IP Office Olena Orliuk and Deputy Director of the IP Office Liubov Maidanyk visited the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition in Munich (Germany).


    The management of the national office joined the round table “Opening up Data for Research on Ukraine”, organized by the Institute, and also took part in a number of informal working meetings on deepening bilateral cooperation between the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition and the IP Office in the area of intellectual property legal protection and Ukraine IP rights enforcement.


    In her speech at the roundtable, Olena Orliuk emphasized the intensity of innovative progress and technological development.



    The use of the latest technologies and artificial intelligence is already a top trend. According to the director of the IP office, Ukraine is also making every effort to keep up with global innovation trends, despite the war of aggression that russia is waging against Ukraine, which has a negative impact on the functioning and development of the Ukrainian economy.


    Despite all the problems and challenges, Ukrainian business continues to work, adapt to the extremely difficult realities, looking for new ideas for implementing and scaling its projects, fill the economy with the necessary high-tech products, and looking for ways to enter new markets“, said Olena Orliuk.


    She noted that today a large number of Ukrainian companies are developing modern technical solutions in such pivotal areas as DefenseTech, MedTech, IT, and AI. This helps to accelerate global innovation development and strengthen our country’s defense potential and economy in times of war, prioritizing the lives of our military and preventing the damage to civilians.


    Olena Orliuk also shared details related to the institutional development of the Ukrainian IP Office, its vision and development plans, as well as the latest documents, including:



    Special emphasis was pointed on The National IP Strategy until 2030, which is being developed by national and foreign experts, and the role of the IP Office in this process.


    Liubov Maidanyk shared with the roundtable participants the details of Ukrainian IP office cooperation with the EU institutions in the IP sphere and provided the main statistics on the receipt of applications for IPR and registration by the IP office. In particular, she noted that the total number of applications for industrial property rights in 2023 increased by 47.6% compared to 2022. Inventions showed an increase of 5.5%, utility models – 47.4%, industrial designs – 34.8%, and trademarks – more than 55.4%.




    The speaker also spoke about e-services and interactive information and online systems of the IP Office and international instruments with which the national IP office actively interacts. In particular, she spoke about the Global Brand Database and the Global Design Database. These databases are regularly updated and contain up-to-date information, including on Ukrainian documentation.


    Liubov Maydanyk also highlighted that due to wartime conditions, some information in Ukrainian registers is restricted for security reasons.


    For information: 


    The event was organised by the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition to strengthen research about Ukraine, collect and study complete data in the innovation cycle: from education and science to inventions, innovations, small and medium-sized enterprises and industry.



    The roundtable participants were looking for answers to the questions that arise when systematically studying public data in order to synergize cooperation with data owners and possible joint research teams with Ukrainian experts.
