About FORPIQ

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).

 A message from our President

The phenomena of globalization, data, and collaborative innovation are putting constant pressure on business strategies. Intellectual property management and protection techniques must adapt accordingly.

The 10th edition of FORPIQ will feature experienced intellectual property managers working in business or technology transfer. These managers will share practical advice, based on their experience and knowledge, as they maneuver in this context of constant change and try to stay on the lookout for best practices.

For the May 1, 2019 event, our goal is to attract more than 200 intellectual property managers who want to update their knowledge by listening to speakers, participating in workshops and networking with colleagues across the province.

We count on you to place intellectual property at the heart of our discussions for a day, and make FORPIQ a success for the 10th time!
