The Research Council of Norway has entered into a cooperation agreement with the Norwegian Industrial Property Office. The two agencies will be collaborating to ensure that intangible assets resulting from R&D projects are utilised in a legally sound manner.

“It is essential to social and industrial development that the results of R&D projects not only are put to use, but are applied effectively and properly. Intellectual property rights (IPR) comprise a key element in this process,” says Anne Kjersti Fahlvik, Executive Director of the Division for Innovation of the Research Council

The two agencies are also considering coordinating and developing existing and new services. The objective is to provide a wide array of opportunities to the customers they share.
