The recent collaboration agreement between 4iP Council and the EUIPO enables both organisations to join forces in pursuit of a common goal: to empower SMEs and promote the benefits of intellectual property protection.
4iP Council, a non-profit organisation with the aim to deliver academic insight and empirical research on topics related to IP, recognises the gap between entrepreneurship and the invention process and the decisions underpinning European policy, job creation and growth. One of 4iP Council’s principal areas of activity is to give guidance to innovators and investors to improve their understanding of intellectual property.
Both organisations aim to unite their efforts and create synergies in the benefit of SMEs. This agreement covers activities such as generating educational content and promoting joint webinars on intellectual property among SMEs, as well as sharing information on IP on the respective websites.
