Visual IPRs



The European Commission will hold their third webinar of the Trade and Technology Council Working Group 9 on promoting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) access to and use of digital tools.

The use of intellectual property to support a business is of paramount importance for both the U.S. and the EU. SMEs need support and guidance to best manage their inventions, brands, or creations globally and to grow and drive the green and digital transition.

The webinar (approx. 2 hours) will focus on selected topics related to intellectual property in the digital economy. The programme will feature speakers from the European Commission and the U.S. Government who will present and discuss subjects having significant importance for SMEs and being of major priority for policymakers on both sides of the Atlantic.

Private sector representatives and SMEs will also share best practices about protecting intellectual property when pursuing international business opportunities. Additional topics will include the importance of intellectual property to attract investment as well as resources to help small businesses take the next step in protecting their intellectual property.
