United Wagon Company has been recognised as Best IP Department in Russia & Central and Eastern Europe 2018 at the Innovation & IP Forum and Awards’18.
In its business activity, UWC places a special emphasis on comprehensive protection of intellectual property – the Company’s key innovations, technologies and products. Thus, hand in hand with All-Union Research and Development Centre for Transportation Technology (part of UWC), the railway holding has created an effective system to support product development.
By patenting technical solutions in key business areas, United Wagon Company has formed a strong patents portfolio, including abroad patents. This let the Company become a leader among Russian car building enterprises, including the sphere of IP protection.
The Company’s patent portfolio is larger than the portfolios of other domestic market players, and the Company plans to make sure the portfolio content reaches the level of the biggest international manufacturers, such as Amsted Rail and Wabtec Corp.
The Innovation & IP Forum and Awards is organised by the Leaders League rating agency as a specialised international patent and IP protection forum. It is one of the biggest business events bringing together more than 400 world experts. In this year, the forum was visited by representatives of worldrenowned companies, such as IBM, Ericsson, AB InBev, Airbus, Nestlé, Tata Group, Time Inc, Nokia, Dassault, Qualcomm, Airbus, Lindt, Orange, Škoda, Sanofi, AT&T, H&M as well as the WIPO.
