Services and Support to Intellectual Property Owners
Our mission is to help intellectual property owners understand what is intellectual property, distinguish between the main types of IP protection and its importance, their responsibility as the rights owners, etc. But the IP Institute also wants to help intellectual property owners benefit from their IP rights and increase their sales, accelerate business growth, improve competitiveness, strengthen their position/reputation as innovators, etc. To do that, our services and support to intellectual property owners include:
Providing in-depth, accurate and up-to-date information on a range of IP-related issues. Intellectual property can be very confusing. To effectively protect one’s IP rights and make the most out of them, however, it is of utmost importance to understand a range of IP-related issues. Most of our activities therefore focus on providing relevant, up-to-date and easy to understand information which is available for free on our website and in our publications.
Organising IP-related events and providing information about similar events with a focus on intellectual property by other organisations/associations. These offer participants first hand information on a host of IP-related issues, with many being centred on business/industry, government, legal, etc. with an aim to provide more detailed information about particular issues and offer concrete answers/solutions to event participants.
Conducting research and developing recommendations on various IP issues. The world is constantly changing which besides bringing new opportunities also brings new challenges in most areas including intellectual property and its protection. We are therefore regularly conducting research on a diversity of issues and developing recommendations accordingly. The main findings of our research projects can be found on our website, while more detailed information is presented in our publications and special events.
Offering expert advice and guidance (on request). We understand that concrete issues require very concrete solutions. We are always happy to help in the form of advice and guidance which is on request provided by our experts. If the problem is too complex, however, we are happy to provide contact information of professionals capable of handling the issue in a timely and cost-effective manner.
