The triangle of business success: Innovation, trademarks and exports

Investigations about Industrial Property

The Spanish Patent and Trademark Office (SPTO) and the Spanish Association for the Defence of Trademarks (ANDEMA) intend to discover with this study the relationship existing between companies that have a commitment to the protection of innovation via industrial property and their exports, thus measuring the extent of its effect on the Spanish economy in 2013.

Specifically, this study focuses on trademarks, patents, utility models and industrial designs, and estimates the contribution of companies having industrial property registrations of this type towards exports.
