4 Reasons to Patent

This flyer aims to help European SMEs unlock all the value of patents and is also available in an on-line interactive version within our 4SMEs section. It was developed by 4iP Council's broad network of academics and supporters with content input from seven well known IP stakeholders. The work identifies four key benefits to patenting - market access, negotiating, funding and strategic value - and breaks these down simply into methods for value-creation.
