Stakeholders are closely involved in our everyday work

We are working with our customers and other partners, such as companies, the authorities and interest-supervision organisations, even more closely than before.

When developing our online services, we ask what our customers think and test the services with them.

Our online services are increasingly introduced as part of joint projects carried out by government agencies. For this reason, we are also developing services in cooperation with other government agencies.

Kuvassa on PRH:n ja Kiinan tavaramerkkiviraston (CNIPA) edustajia. Representatives from the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) visited the PRH in October.

We maintain close contacts with our partners for example by arranging advisory events and cooperation meetings.

During the year, we arranged a large number of events for our stakeholders and took part in events arranged by others.

Kuvassa on Maailman henkisen omaisuuden tapahtuman 26.4.2018 yleisöä ja robotti NAO, joka kertoi tilaisuudessa kiertotaloushankkeesta. An event marking the World Intellectual Property Day was held in Hämeenlinna in April. The PRH organised the event in cooperation with the Häme University of Applied Sciences. At the event, a robot called NAO (in the upper right-hand corner) spoke about a circular economy project.
