The Mission of the IPR Alliance
Mindful that a sound, harmonised and progressive approach to intellectual property rights is essential to the endeavour of maintaining Europe an innovation driven society, we believe that intellectual property is one of Europe’s greatest assets, core of European industry competitiveness. It is a primary fuel for business, equally important to both large companies and SMEs, and a key to deliver high levels of employment, productivity and social cohesion.
Federating European technology and equipment providers, our main goal is to safeguard European Union’s innovative spirit by strengthening and securing intellectual property rights (IPR).
