Get your ticket to innovation!
We believe that knowing how to manage Intellectual Property (IP) and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) is the ticket to innovation and competitiveness in Europe. The European IPR Helpdesk offers free of charge, first-line support on IP and IPR matters to beneficiaries of EU funded research projects and EU SMEs involved in transnational partnership agreements, especially within the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN).

Our Helpline service provides tailor-made advice on your specific IP or IPR query – customized, straight-forwardly, comprehensibly and free of charge. Get in touch with our team of experienced lawyers via registration on our website, phone or fax and receive a qualified answer or examination of your personal IP issue within three working days. In addition we offer free of charge training events on different aspects of IP management and IPR based on a practical and comprehensive training approach. Regular publications such as an eMail Newsletter and the Bulletin keep you updated on the latest developments in the field of IP and IPR.
