A joint study carried out by the European Patent Office (EPO) and the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) highlights the benefits of using intellectual property in Europe.
The key points are as follows :
– Average wages in IPR-intensive industries are more than 45% higher than in other industries.
– These businesses have shown more resilience in the face of the economic crisis of these last few years.
IP assets are of major importance especially for European SMEs.
