Under the framework of the EUIPO’s European Cooperation Projects, a memorandum of understanding was signed on 30 July 2020 between the Hellenic Industrial Property Organisation (OBI) and the Municipality of Mykonos, in cooperation with the Mykonos Town Business Owners Association. Through this memorandum, the city of Mykonos, in Greece, was certified as an official ‘Authenticity’.
Mykonos is the capital of the homonymous Cycladic Island, which is located in the heart of the Aegean sea. It is famed as a cosmopolitan destination among the Greek islands, combining history and archaeological sites, a unique natural environment, local products and cuisine. Mykonos’s ports have high traffic, activity and growth, especially during the summer period. Trade and consumption indicators are also high, as the wide range of luxury shops of Mykonos provide the numerous tourists with the opportunity for shopping.
As a certified Authenticity, a series of IP-related awareness-raising activities are planned to take place locally over the next two years in Mykonos.
