The Geographical Indication (GI) is used to identify the origin of products or services when the location has become known or when a certain characteristic or quality of the product or service is due to its origin.

This is the second edition of the Geographical Indication Notice. In 2018, 14 projects were contemplated, which are under study for the preparation of the document to be sent to the National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI), responsible for the granting of Geographical Indications.

The State of São Paulo has few GIs registered with the INPI, opening the opportunity for the IFSP to support the Local Productive Arrangement. The granting of IG can contribute to the community and the IFSP in several ways:

  1.   The product that receives a GI is now recognized for its distinctive characteristics, which allows to increase demand, thus contributing to the income of local producers;
  2.  The increase in demand contributes to an increase in the generation of jobs in the region;
  3.  The IFSP starts to better understand the history and characteristics of local producers, thus being able to better prepare students for the world of work;
  4.  Based on this understanding, the IFSP can identify opportunities for cooperative research, innovation or service provision projects, fulfilling the objectives and characteristics provided for in its creation law.
