Accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic, the digitalization of China’s healthcare sector is offering an increasing number of opportunities for the SMEs engaged in Med Tech. As this sector is considered a priority sector for the Chinese Government, EU SMEs with innovative solutions can expect to find a booming market. As Med Tech sector is driven by new technologies and innovation, IPR protection is the crucial part of market success.
As SMEs invest substantial resources in the development of new technologies, technical solutions and new designs, losing their inventions to competitors is too costly, thus it is important to properly plan a comprehensive IP strategy including all aspects of IP related to Med Tech.
