The European Patent Office (EPO) and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to provide a general framework that will guide co-operation activities between the two organisations. …

The signatories emphasised the need to support Europe’s innovation ecosystems with a view to creating sustainable growth, including by fostering synergies between the EPO’s Europe-wide PATLIB network of patent information centres and the EIT Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs). These KICs work with local organisations across Europe as innovation hubs, forming the larger EIT Community. The scheme is a central pillar of the work of the EIT, which the European Union set up in 2008 to strengthen Europe’s ability to innovate. …

« Our partnership with the EIT will help us share knowledge even more effectively and support innovators, start-ups, SMEs and businesses across Europe with best-in-class expertise … », said EPO President António Campinos.
