EUIPO Strategic Plan 2025: Call for views

The EUIPO is calling upon all stakeholders to help guide the Office’s strategic priorities up until 2025. Full details here.

Go to home pageAn important aim of the EUIPO Strategic Plan 2025 (SP2025) will be to help companies to gain full benefit from their innovation and creativity, whether in Europe or the global marketplace, having regard to technological advances shaping business models.

Based on the achievements of the Office’s first two strategic plans, and, in particular, following the successful creation of the European Union Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN), we need to ensure this network is both sustainable and able to respond to the globalisation of the marketplace, the rise of e-commerce, and the threat of IP infringements, which frequently has a cross-border dimension.

Overall, the Office needs to ensure it is an attractive and reliable entry point to IP protection covering a broad range of IP rights. It should develop into an IP excellence hub providing high quality public service making European businesses more competitive in an ever more global and digital environment.

The forces of globalisation, technological change, and the rapidly changing world of work are all factors that need to be considered. Navigating this complex landscape successfully will require partnership between public and private stakeholders at the national, EU and global levels in order to anticipate, and prepare for the future.

Consequently, SP2025 will focus on adding value to the internal market; on ensuring the effectiveness of the IP system for the benefit of European businesses (with an emphasis on SMEs) and citizens; and on contributing to the creation of jobs and economic growth, in alignment with the EU’s priorities.

The overall aim of SP2025 will be to create Added Value and Growth for the benefit of EU citizens, businesses and IP stakeholders.

Three strategic drivers are provided to support an effective consultation process:

Strategic Driver 1: Interconnected, Effective and Reliable IP System
