New Horizon IPR Service facilitates the management of Intellectual Property


On 22 March 2022, the European Commission launched its new Intellectual Property (IP) Scan service for Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe. This free IP support service is designed to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to efficiently manage and valorise IP in collaborative research and innovation efforts. The service is open to European start-ups and SMEs (according to the EC definition) that are about to sign a Horizon (2020/Europe) Grant Agreement or have recently signed one (up to six months after signature). SMEs interested in the Horizon IP Scan can apply for the service at any time via the Horizon IP Scan website using the continuous open call.
