A survey about small and medium company done from Fondazione Impresa tells that the smallest companies innovate more than the others.
In the North-east of Italy are the 31,3%, in the North-west the 30,7%.
In the middle of Italy the percentage goes down, in the South is the 26%.
But the survey says that innovation unfortunately doesn’t mean patent; the companies in fact tell that they don’t feel afraid of being copied.
People need to understand the benefits of protection as investment for the future.
