Re-Engineering Nordic Strategies and Services for Profitable IPR Results

It’s an exciting time to be working in the Nordic IPR sphere.

Keeping up with emerging trends and practices in the region has never been so exhilarating. In particular, as the Nordic IPR movement shifts its concentration from heavy technologies to consumer based innovations (particularly in gaming and programming), there are numerous strategies to stay on top of in 2015.

As the longest running event in the region, the Nordic IPR forum has firmly established itself as Scandinavia’s premier IPR summit, offering excellent insight on the above strategies and more.

IQPC is therefore delighted to announce the return of this must-attend, 12th Annual Nordic IPR Summit, running from March 24 -26, 2015 in Stockholm.

  • Patent Mining Strategy
    In the last couple of years over 40 million patent families have been filed all around the world. In the last fifteen years there have been as many applications as during the previous 50 years. Even if 12 million patent families are currently still alive, it just takes no more than one to harm your business, your idea and to potentially crash your entrepreneurial dream.
