Managing and Protecting your Patent Portfolio to Maxisimise Revenue and Balance Costs

The Nordic IPR Forum is the most renowned event for senior IP professionals who want to get the latest implemented strategies and to learn the current IP trends to be able to bring their IP strategies even further.

Bringing experts from the Nordic region, one of the most patent-intensive regions in Europe and selected key global companies, the Nordic IPR Forum brings together R&D intensive industries and experts to discuss both business patent portfolio management areas and crucial legal issues.
