Join the EU Industry Days 2021!

EU Industry Days is Europe's flagship annual event on industry.

It serves as the main platform to discuss industrial challenges and co-develop opportunities and policy responses in an inclusive dialogue with a wide range of partners.

It also helps to ensure that our policy at European, national, regional and local levels works together to enable European industry to deliver jobs, growth, and innovation in Europe.

The next edition will take place in the week of 23-26 February 2021. It happens in a very special moment, when our industry is embarking upon green and digital transformation, opening up new opportunities for EU businesses and citizens.

IPR Helpdesk @ EU Industry Days

Good management of Intellectual Property (IP) can be at the heart of commercial success for SMEs operating at the EU level as well as internationally. The International IP SME Helpdesks, as well as the European IP Helpdesk, provide expert advice to EU SMEs, SMEs from COSME associated countries, EU multipliers, participants and candidates to EU-funded projects and EU innovation stakeholders.

The session will explain how the IP Helpdesks can help manage, disseminate and valorise technologies and other IP rights and assets at the EU level. Using successful examples of Helpdesk users, it will also showcased how IP Helpdesks contribute to the internationalisation of EU SMEs by ensuring they protect and enforce their IP in countries such as China, South-East Asia, India or Latin America.
