This joint project between the European Patent Office and the European Union Intellectual Property Office aims to determine the importance of IPR activities for High Growth Firms (HGFs) in Europe. To this end, it assesses whether SMEs that make more frequent use of IPRs are more likely to become HGFs. It also examines the particular ways in which HGFs shape their IPR strategies prior to experiencing high growth.
