IPR2 was a partnership project between the European Union and the People’s Republic of China, jointly funded and implemented from 2007 to 2011. During this time, a large number of European and Chinese experts were brought together to address common issues on the Chinese legislative, judicial and administrative systems for administering and enforcing intellectual property rights, to increase access to IP information and provide support right holders. In doing so, IPR2 targeted the reliability, efficiency and accessibility of the IP protection system, aimed at establishing a sustainable environment for effective IPR enforcement in China.
