Our managing director Markku Simmelvuo was selected as the IP person of the year 2017 at the IPR Gala organized by IPR University Center on Friday, 26 January 2018 in Helsinki, Finland.

The panel’s decision was based on Markku’s active and innovative way of leading Papula-Nevinpat, his contribution to the overall positive atmosphere of the whole IP community, and his broad perspective and expertise across the field.

In particular, Markku was merited for his active and long-term participation in the work of various IP organizations, both in Finland as well as internationally, such as AIPPI (International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property), the Finnish Association for Industrial Property Rights, and the Association of Finnish Patent Attorneys. In addition, Markku’s prompt action and enthusiastic approach have been instrumental in bringing the IP field together and raising awareness.

”I feel very humble to be awarded as the IP person of the year. I want to thank the whole IP community, the panel, and IPR University Center for organizing the IPR Gala. My thanks also go to the entire staff of Papula-Nevinpat – it’s a pleasure to work with such talented experts.
