New boom in the number of European patent applications filings

10% up : patent applications at the European Patent Office on the rise again.
For 232 000 European patent applications in 2010, only 39% of these filings (instead of 51 % in 2009) originated from the 38 member states of the European Patent Organisation.
An opportunity to remind us of the need for European and especially the French industry, to become more aware of the role of patents in the global competition.
