Policy debate during the EU Industry Days 2022: The Unitary Patent System and SME Instruments in the Area of Intellectual Property

The European Commission is very close to launching the unitary patent system. With the unitary patent, European companies, and particularly SMEs, will be able to protect their inventions on the EU market more easily and at a more competitive price.

Intellectual property (IP) improves the competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and provide a potential source of revenue. SMEs have specific needs, such as understanding the importance of IP for their businesses, tailored advice in assessing their intangibles, financial support to protect and enforce their IP and better access to finance provided by investors and banks to help them scale up.
