Patents in FP7

Why to deal with this? The protection of intellectual property rights is an important strategic pillar for especially technology and innovation driven enterprises to maintain their market position in global competition. Especially small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) need help to enhance their understanding and use of intellectual property rights with a view to promoting innovation and competitiveness in line with the European Commission's Lisbon goals. IP4inno is part of PRO INNO Europe: an innovation policy initiative of the European Commission's Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry as part of the CIP.

What’s the relevant HTE output? The Hightech Europe partners are experienced with European funding programmes, even though the project itself does not focus on access rights and intellectual property. This website (Food Tech Innovation Portal) helps you identify technologies and suitable partners for European R&D projects, including comments on IP for each technology.
Whom can I talk to from the HTE team? All partners should be able to signpost you to organisations competent in the field of IP management.
