How well are Swiss SMEs informed and supported when they have questions about protecting their IP?
A study has concluded that the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI) performs well, together with other points of contact for SMEs – known as intermediaries. However, the authors also see potential for improvement.
Switzerland is a country of inventors. Start-ups and SMEs reinforce this reputation with their innovations and creative achievements. Intellectual property and its protection is a key piece of the puzzle for a company on the path to success.
It is only when a SME knows how to manage their intellectual assets and how to protect their own innovations that they are able to make strategic and groundbreaking decisions for the company.
