Intellectual property can improve competitiveness of enterprises, even if it's a very small enterprise. It may help find financing for innovative ideas or ask for a higher price for innovative products and services. As a SME, you may find it expensive to protect what is yours. That is why the European Commission is developing tools and services to support innovative SMEs in the area of intellectual property and help you benefit from your intangible assets.
The European Commission is launching a survey to see if 'Seal of Excellence' SMEs would find access to an intellectual property pre-diagnostic service beneficial. To give us your feedback, please take a few minutes and participate in a short survey before 10 September.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to the development of EU policies.
