Association of IP Professionals in Swedish Industry
(Svenska Industrins IP Förening, SIPF)
The Association of IP Professionals in Swedish Industry was founded in 1939.
The objectives of the Association are:
- to protect the interests of Swedish industry in the field of industrial property
- promote the dissemination of news and information among its members to promote a high level of professional conduct
The Association holds regular meetings to discuss matters in the field of Intellectual Property, mostly in the field of patents and trademarks and designs. Lecturers from all over the world are invited to these meetings to present current topics in Intellectual Property Law. The Association has around 550 members at present, representing a wide range of companies and agency firms in Sweden.
The Association also acts as a referral body in legislative matters. It is regularly given the opportunity to declare its opinion to the Swedish Patent and Registrations Office and to the Swedish Government in Intellectual Property matters.
The Association is a member of the European Federation of Agents of Industry in Intellectual Property (FEMIPI).
The Association is a non-profit organisation without any employed staff.
