The ambassador of this month is Emilie Marcelet from Hauts de France Innovation Development, who has been part of the team since 2013. Emilie has more than 20 years professional experience in in EU-Funded projects as well as transnational technology transfer. As IP is a common issue in all stages of innovative projects, she provides valuable support to SMEs in their research and innovation efforts.

The main challenge that SMEs face with regard to IP, according to Emilie’s interview, is to access to the right information at the right time since it is essential for the competitiveness of an SME. She also highlighted that most of the SMEs are not aware of the importance of IP and the benefits of having a relevant IP strategy. Therefore, it is crucial to support them in developing an efficient IP strategy.
