The Africa IP SME Helpdesk is an EU-funded project set up to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from the European Union (EU) in the process of creating, protecting, utilising, administering and enforcing intellectual property rights (IPR) across Africa, in line with international and European best practice and in support of the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement (AfCFTA) and the African Union’s Agenda 2063.
The EU and African countries share a common interest in facilitating trade and investment among themselves. African countries offer EU SMEs a diverse market with a wide spectrum of economic, cultural and geographical features, as well as varying degrees of development of their IP systems.

Cooperation between the EU and African countries in the Africa IP SME Helpdesk project will provide a unique opportunity for European SMEs to invest in Africa and, in that process, enable African countries to access global business value chains while, at the same time, contributing to sustainable development and economic growth in Africa.
