On 10 November, the European Commission Directorate General Research and Innovation (DG RTD), the European Innovation Council (EIC), SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA), and the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) signed a letter of intent for co-operation on intellectual property (IP) management.
This commitment will enhance efforts of coordination between all parties in the field of IP management. It will come to support the objectives of the European Research Area (ERA) to ensure the EU’s competitive leadership in R&I and the market uptake of research results.
This initiative will translate to the implementation of various activities, such as awareness raising actions on IP, measures to support SMEs in the economy, and upcoming IP policies development.
