Together with other 14 associations, ESA is proudly a partner organisation of the project looking at the role of intellectual property in innovation. The primary objective is to provide political leaders and stakeholders recommendations in the form of IP research on how to deal with innovation.

During the meeting hold in Brussels this week, Jared has presented his main research questions and very insightful first results achieved.
