Green IP presentations from European Patent Forum 2010

The EPO has posted presentations from this years European Patent Forum on their website. Presentations from both organisations (OECD, EU, UN), academics and businesses (Vestas, Siemens) are available.

The presentations give a good view into what is going on in green IP at the moment, with the speaking notes of Finn Strøm Madsen from Vestas as a good example. Green patents are increasing with up to 20% per annum. It is also interesting to see that what drives innovation in alternative fuel vehicles is fuel prices and not public R&D support.
