IP matters. It touches everything that makes modern life, easier, safer, prosperous and more enjoyable. Our work gives researchers, inventors and creators, whether as individuals or businesses, the confidence to invest their time, energy and money in doing something new and making life better.
We will help the UK become the most creative and innovative country in the world by:
Excellent IP services
Providing IP services for our customers is central to the IPO. To be the best we will build on our strengths in rights granting and related services, and improve our digital services and data.
Creating a world leading IP environment
The UK has a world class IP system but this is only part of the picture. We want the whole IP environment, from the legal and policy framework, to the level of IP knowledge and the ability to protect rights, to be world leading, and provide incentives to invest in innovation.
Making the IPO a brilliant place to work
The IPO is already a great place to work, but we want to make it a brilliant place. Staff can feel confident in being themselves and are dedicated to providing the best service for our customers.
