Call
Intellectual Property pre-diagnostics
Description of call
"Intellectual Property pre-diagnostics"
Most SMEs across the EU do not own any Intellectual Property (IP). Many SMEs claim that a reason for this is a lack of knowledge about this topic. Moreover, the costs are relatively high and the specific competence of patent lawyers to support them would be needed. Thus, actions under this call should focus on facilitating the access for innovative SMEs to effecively protect and enforce their intellectual property. Activities have to cover all of the following six areas: 1) Setting up the Coordination Centre; 2) Setting up the website; 3) Publishing, coordinating and managing the calls for expression of interest; 4) Action impact measurement; 5) Management, quality control and evaluation; 6) Reporting
