Note the provocative question all IP owners should ask themselves.
The first episode of CIP FORUM Overtime tackled Employee Inventorship and Compensation in the Knowledge Economy, featuring Sanna Wolk, Raymond Millien, Anne-Mari Lummevuo, and Peter Thornquist.

Watch our partners at Konsert outlining the challenges IP managers face in the sustainability transition. As the societal need for rapid diffusion and scaling of green innovation continues to increase, IP has a critical role to play to:
- support collaborative development of sustainability innovations;
- support setup and governance of sustainability-focused business ecosystems; and
- enable new green business models
To take on this role, IP departments must find ways to evolve their capabilities in relation to both IP strategy and operations. At the top of the list: achieving a close integration of IP into the business-strategic dialogue.
Development & Innovation
You will be part of the patent team at IKEA, which belongs to the Development and Innovation department, where your focus area will be to handle and support the growing IKEA patent portfolio. We hope that you are passionate about technology and that you have a solid understanding of intellectual property. You will meet inventors from a variety of technologies – everything from new materials to assembly solutions and furniture construction. You will in close collaboration with the inventors and the business team capture the invention, understand its business potential and work with external consultants to draft patents to protect it. You will also spend time making sure our products do not infringe third-party rights by making risk assessments and give recommendations. Our prototype shop is just a door away from the office, so you will have plenty of opportunities to interact directly with prototypes and future products.
