The Centre for Intellectual Property Research, Promotion & Facilitation (CIPRPF) is an integral part of India SME Forum that has been set up with the support from the Ministry of MSME at Mumbai & Delhi.
Protecting and managing intellectual property rights (IPR) is the first step for any business seeking to establish its presence in India, and must be incorporated as an integral part of the business asset growth strategy.
