Discover how economic and technological challenges are being addressed by businesses through investment and strategy, find out which geographical regions are experiencing investment growth, and how IP is likely to change over the coming decade.
All trends indicate an underlying drive to realign and grow in the face of changing technological, economic, and industry conditions. Portfolio management strategy is a cornerstone of success and a driver for growth. An openness to embrace the growing availability of new technology is also key to enable greater efficiency.
As Duncan Park, Leading Counsel Intellectual Property at Statoil comments in the white paper: “With open innovation and the development of research across the internet and across borders, the IP landscape will change – with less and less large patent portfolios, less using IP to exclude other parties, and more collaboration.”

- Cost Control is of Importance to 93.6% of Trademark professionals and 96.4% in Patents
