The Publications Committee coordinates, overviews and ensures the high quality of ECTA publications. The Committee members are the point of contact for ideas for and contributions to publications from the different Committees and members of different Member States as well as contributors from outside the EU. The quality of the publications and the form of publications shall be a tool to maintain the good reputation of ECTA.
The mission of the Publications Committee is to share (in a visible way) knowledge and expertise and make it easily accessible to all members of the association and beyond. In pursuing this goal the Publications Committee publishes the ECTA Bulletin and encourages the members of the association to participate, create and contribute in the publication of research articles, case studies, literature reviews (book, web-based, multimedia), podcasts and other social media content and conference reports that emphasize developments in the fields of trade marks, designs, copyright and other intellectual property rights within the European Union.
