What are intellectual property rights?

Intellectual property rights, or IPR, are legal protection rights granted to individuals or organisations for their creative or inventive works. IPR gives the creator exclusive rights to control  and benefit from their creations or inventions.

VTT offers its customers three main types of intellectual property rights:

  • Patents
  • Trade secrets (technical know-how)
  • Software
