What is Invent With Nokia?

Invent With Nokia is Nokia’s Intellectual Property open innovation platform that’s designed to facilitate invention submissions sourced from outside the company. Even though Nokia has thousands of talented people and invests billions of dollars each year in R&D, Nokia is eager to work with external companies and individuals who can bring diverse technology and new ideas to Nokia’s business. Nokia’s successful track record of strategic alliances has built a strong collaborative spirit within Nokia.

What is Intellectual Property?

Intellectual Property refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; symbols, names as well as images used in commerce. IP is protected in law by, for example, patents, copyright and trademarks, which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create. By striking the right balance between the interests of innovators and the wider public interest, the IP system aims to foster an environment in which creativity and innovation can flourish.
