Papula-Nevinpat’s Riikka Palmos invited to ECTA International Trade Committee


Riikka Palmos has been invited to join ECTA Committees as a member of the International Trade Committee to strengthen their Russia/Ukraine IP expertise.

About the ECTA International Trade Committee

The International Trade Committee was founded in 2020, as a result of regular meetings with DG TRADE. Indeed, it had become apparent from such meetings through the years that there was a common need for the EU Commission and ECTA to be able to hold fruitful exchanges on intellectual property matters with regard to the external trade relations of the European Union. Further, ECTA had previously created two Task Forces (TF), namely the Brexit TF and the China TF, which had focused on these two specific issues but, as the time passed, it was rather logical that a larger Committee should be created, encompassing these, as well as other trade issues.

About ECTA

With more than 1500 members, coming from all Member States of the EU and beyond, ECTA promotes the knowledge and professionalism of the intellectual property law community in the fields of trade marks, designs, copyright and other intellectual property rights, within the European Union.
