The 40 plus participants, from EUIPO and CARIFORUM, were exposed to tools such as TMview, TMclass, Designview and Designclass which are specifically for search and classification of trademarks and industrial designs. There are other intellectual property based tools to assist in areas such as quality standards, surveying, forecasting and even the law enforcement.
