We advocate for effective IP protection and enforcement frameworks, to make possible continued R&D investments, innovation, and European technology leadership.

IP Europe works at the forefront of IP policymaking, on behalf of leading European innovators. Our work focuses on preserving the open standards development model, ensuring effective IP protection, and supporting SMEs within a thriving European innovation ecosystem.

You can learn more about our priorities by clicking on the subject links below. We’ve also created an infographic of the IP Europe Policy Recommendations 2019-2024, which we presented to the European Commission at the start of its latest mandate.


At IP Europe we believe in the open standards approach to technology development, which relies on IP licensing with fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) terms and conditions. The IP Europe blog provides information and insights about how open standards and FRAND deliver the cutting-edge technologies that are the foundation of the European digital economy.

The IP Europe blog does not necessarily reflect the position of any individual IP Europe member.
