IP Europe

About us

With 40% of total economic activity in the EU generated by Intellectual Property (“IP”) intensive companies and 35% of all employment – that is 77 million of European jobs – stemming from such industries, Europe needs to maximise the contribution of IP and up its R&D investments to realize the full potential of the knowledge economy.

IP Europe brings together R&D-intensive European companies and research institutes committed to innovation, from SMEs to global enterprises and non-profit research entities operating in a variety of industrial sectors.

IP Europe is a coalition of IPR and R&D intensive organizations globally headquartered in Europe. Our goal is to educate European policy-makers and give a voice to innovative companies, including SMEs, that rely on their R&D investments and their patents to succeed. IP Europe will help you:

  • Keep you informed of new European rules and policies that affect your ability to secure fair revenues from your R&D investments
  • Meet EU lawmakers that take decisions affecting your R&D investments
  • Act and influence EU policies affecting your patents and R&D investments alongside with world-class European enterprises
  • Find EU programs that help you leverage your patent portfolio and secure investments for your projects
