Webinar on IPRs and firms: intellectual property rights and firm performance
in the European Union and IP support measures for SMEs in Japan
IPRs play a vital role for firms that are trying to establish themselves by introducing products and services into the market. Is there any correlation between IPRs and business performance? Are SMEs ready to navigate the world of IPRs? To answer these questions, we are going to have an EU-Japan approach that will help us understand how IPRs and firm performance are indeed correlated, and how SMEs can benefit from IPRs, and how they can be helped in doing so.
The first part of this webinar will illustrate the results of the follow-up report by the EUIPO and the EPO covering the period from 2007-2019 into the role of IPRs by analyzing a representative sample of over 127,000 European firms from all 27 EU member states and the UK.
In the second part of the webinar, we will go through the main supporting measures that the JPO provides to support SMEs, and startups which play a vital role in the world’s economy.
