Maintain Competitive Advantage by Protecting and Monetising your Intellectual Property

As the longest running event in the region, the Nordic IPR forum has firmly established itself as Scandanavia's premier intellectual property rights event.

Our network of Intellectual Property Rights professionals have told us that the on-going economic recession and increase in global competition has put pressure on companies to up the ante on innovation, increasing productivity and cutting cost.

Through brand new case-studies, interactive panel discussions, practical workshops and round-table discussions you will have the opportunity to delve deep into ways of successfully protecting your intangible assets and ensuring that they are generating value for your business.

We are working hard to make sure that the 11th Annual Nordic IPR forum (25th – 27th March 2014) is even better than the previous years, delivering you with a fresh agenda which will provide you with practical examples on how to best manage your IP portfolio.


Having brought together over 800 Heads of IP, Patents and Trademarks, from more than 350 European companies over the past 10 years, make sure you don’t miss one the largest gatherings of European IPR professionals.
