EIT and EUIPO: New Agree­ment to be­ne­fit SMEs

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) and the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) have signed an agreement that brings together innovation and intellectual property for the benefit of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

EIT is an European body created in 2008 to strengthen Europe's ability to innovate. EUIPO is the European agency responsible for managing registrations of the EU trade mark and the registered Community design valid in all EU member states.

Both organisations play a complementary role in supporting SMEs and entrepreneurs and, as a result, the European economy as a whole.
