In France

SMEs are at the origin of a growing number of patent applications in France: 21.2%. This figure has been steadily increasing since 2012, i.e. 6.9% in 4 years. Over the same period, the majority of patent applications were filed by large companies (56.8%) and 7.8% by mid-sized companies. (INPI report)

If these figures show a positive trend and an awareness of the interest of industrial property by SMEs, the effort remains to be pursued, which our firm regularly focuses on in Paris and outside by intervening with incubators, start-ups, competitiveness clusters, clients etc. Do not hesitate to contact us.
