    About FORPIQ - our partner for this new event

    FORPIQ (the International Intellectual Property Forum – Quebec) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to increase the level of knowledge of innovative Canadian companies and their advisers with respect to IP assets, in order to gain more value therefrom.

    In order to attain this objective, FORPIQ organizes forums bringing together: business leaders, intellectual property experts, investors, as well as government representatives in order to discuss and exchange their experiences and best practices with respect to IP.

    FORPIQ was set up jointly by the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada (IPIC), the Licensing Executives Society (LES), the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI) and the International Federation of Intellectual Property Attorneys (FICPI).
