CIP builds, maintains and manages networks of international leaders and experts in the field of knowledge-based business from industry, academia and public actors. These networks supports and interacts to the furthest extent possible with all activities promoted, supported, coordinated or managed by the center and the CIP platform. CIP has an industry partner program with key actors such as Philips, Ericsson and Nestlé, collaborating on multiple levels of education and research activities.
During Mar 12th-14th CIP welcomes 21 participants in the first module of the executive education Business of IP to Gothenburg. The participants come from a dozen different industry organisations, primarily CIP industry partners Volvo, Sandvik, Electrolux, Nokia and Statoil.
The education is led by CIP co-director Bowman Heiden and CIP Global council member Ruud Peters, former CIPO, Philips.
CIP is delighted to welcome new professionals to our extensive network and look forward to the second module of the program in the end of May.
We hope to see you at CIP FORUM 2018. For continuous updates, join us on LinkedIn.

CIP thanks India Development Foundation, Carnegie India and all collaborators making CIP Summit India 2017 possible. The two days of interesting discussion about India’s innovation and IP system has lead to many new insights that CIP will incorporate into coming activities, such as CIP FORUM 2018.
We are also pleased to have encountered many female professionals in the Indian IP and technology field, and will make sure to include these female leaders in our activities.
CIP has just arrived in New Delhi for the CIP Summit India 2017, on the 2nd-3rd November. CIP is honored to arrange the summit in collaboration with India Development Foundation (IDF) and Carnegie India, supported by the Embassy of Seden in New Delhi.
The aim of the current collaborative effort is to contextualize intellectual property debates within the larger narrative of innovation, and to identify policy measures for effective and innovator-friendly outcomes” states Shubhashis Gangopadhyay Research Director os IDF and C. Raja Mohan, Director of Carnegie India. “Therefore, the discussions will be led by a select group of academics, policy makers, and industry representatives from high-innovation settings and sectors. At the end of this workshop, the partners plan to come out with a detailed report capturing the discussions at each session and the policy insights emerging from them.”
Among the participants of the conference we find both academics and industry professionals, such as Kirti Gupta from Qualcomm, Vikas Kathuria from Bennett University, Sheetal Chopra from Ericsson, Avirup Bose from Jindal Global Law School, Rajesh Gokhale from National Institute of Immunology, and Chitra Iyer from Philips.
CIP looks forward to interesting discussions and new insights into innovation process and IP management on the Indian market.
CIPs Bowman Heiden and Anton Svensson participated in the IP4Business Training Roadshow event the 12th of October in the Estonian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Tallinn.
The IP4Business roadshow aims to educate and inspire SMEs, entrepreneurs, inventors, designers, tech transfer professionals and students on how to work with intellectual property and assets to grow. The session was very interesting with a run-down of the IPR helpdesk activities along with a presentation of the Unitary patent and unitary patent court system that is due to be implemented shortly after many years of work.
Heiden held a lecture based on intellectual asset management and the theoretical framework of the three arenas which was followed by a presentation of one of the case studies performed on behalf of the EPO on Skeleton Technologies, an Estonian company developing, producing and selling graphene ultracapacitators. It is an interesting case of one of the first commercialized applications of the “two dimensional” material which enables superior performance to ultracapacitators.
It was a great event and a great opportunity to build on the strong collaboration between CIP and the European Patent Office.
CIP participates at SNITTS’ (Swedish Network for Innovation and Technology Transfer Support) yearly conference Innovation by Collaboration in Stockholm, to join in the discussions on how to maximize Sweden’s innovation capacity and what best practice cases to be inspired from on both and national and international level.
CIP Deputy Director Bowman Heiden will talk on the first day on the topic “What can we actually accomplish? – a therapy session” where he will bring attention to the value creation of technology transfer.
CIP’s colleague Knut Egelie will also talk on the second day on “The development of the IP and patent landscape for CRIPSR/Cas”.
