Conference: The Unitary Patent System - A Game Changer For Innovation in Europe

The long-awaited entry into operation of the Unitary Patent system in spring 2023 will mark the dawning of a new era for IP in Europe and the fostering of innovation across the continent.

As an additional element of the European patent system, the Unitary Patent system will be of particular benefit to start-ups and SMEs and will eventually enable them to obtain protection in up to 25 EU Member States by filing a single application with the EPO. What's more, with the creation of the Unified Patent Court, the new system will remove the last remaining obstacles to the EU's single market, thus helping to strengthen the European technology market.
