Dear friends of Europe's 500,

Europe's 500 top growth companies meet regularly at the European Roundtable for Growth and discuss issues between them, the Commission's representatives and academia.

One of the topics that has regularly been on the agenda is the European Patent, that should allow Europeans to get European protection without 27 applications and dozends of translations.
A very important step towards making Europe one market.

We can gladly report that finally this issue has achieved the level of attention and consensus that the EU Commission will propose a very helpful European patent reform that will enhance innovation, cross fertilisation and more European wide activities.

We encourage the Commission really to do it.
Let's continue to think for Europe.
Our next focus will be on competitive growth financing.

Martin Schoeller
President Europe's 500
