Several organisations across Europe and in particular the Enterprise Europe Network organise brokerage events. These events are an easy, cheap and quick way for SMEs to meet with potential business partners. Generally, participation requires companies to publicly show their technologies profiles in the event’s website or at the venue. Regardless of the format of such events, there are some risks associated with intellectual property (IP) that all participants should be aware of.

The purpose of this new brochure is to provide an outline of the main IP issues that SMEs should consider when participating in a brokerage event. For further details, please check our fact sheet on brokerage events available in our online library.
