Access the world of innovation.

Following the initiative of the European Commission the European Network of National Intellectual Property (IP) Offices currently brings together IP offices from 30 European countries. The network particularly aims to streamline IP services for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) that are provided by the individual national offices to offer an improved IP service portfolio for SMEs in Europe. Making them recognize the importance of IP and enabling them to manage and safeguard their intellectual assets is key to ensuring innovation and competitiveness in Europe.
