EPO Observatory on Patents and Technology - Boosting Startups with Intellectual Property

The very first event of the EPO’s new Observatory on Patents and Technologywill explore how deep tech start-ups can harness the power of IP rights to drive innovative solutions and attract investment.

Recent years have seen a spectacular growth of the start-up ecosystem in Europe, with a new generation of European ventures emerging onto the world stage. Among them, deep tech start-ups are developing cutting-edge technologies and engineering to address the key challenges of digitalisation, sustainability, and industrial renaissance. These ventures have very specific issues when bringing disruptive technology to market, such as higher capital needs and a combination of technology and market risks which some investors may be less able to manage.
