Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs)



Are you interested in commercialising a new idea, product, service or process? The Enterprise Europe Network will help you work out how to protect and make the most of your firm’s ideas and technologies. We can also put you in touch with the right organisations and IP experts – saving you time and money.

The Network provides information and advice on intellectual property. We work closely with specialist organisations that help small businesses to use intellectual property rights to protect and profit from their ideas and innovation. We can also help you to find new markets and export opportunities. 

Contact your local Enterprise Europe Network branch to ask for help in identifying, protecting and commercialising your intellectual property.
