IP Mediation Centre in Prague, a registered institute, is a non-profit organization whose goal is to raise awareness of intellectual property (IP) protection, especially among small and medium-sized enterprises, in the field of research, development, innovation and transfer of knowledge into the application sphere. At the same time, we want to promote the possibilities of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in this area, especially in the form of mediation. The mediation is a way of peaceful settlement of disputes and conflicts, which aims agreement. In the field of IP, it is the settlement of highly professional disagreements and disputes that arise in relation to the creation, application and evaluation of intellectual property objects.
