IAC has been created to assist data-driven cleantech businesses to best compete on a global scale.

A coherent IP strategy enables a company to secure and deploy IP rights in a manner that captures the future value of its innovation.  IAC’s IP Generation program provides funding to members pursuing IP protection to incentivise the development of a portfolio of IP rights that can help a scaling business manage risk and create opportunities.

The IP Generation program includes member credits, which invest the annual membership fee to cover IP-related expenses.  It also includes a grant program that provides merit-based funding for further IP activity to companies that can demonstrate a sound IP strategy that articulates the business problem being addressed, the commercial impact of the solution, and a plan to protect the innovation enabling that solution.
