Inventor nominations

Please share your love for an inventor’s work with us

Nominate your favourite European technology and engineering inventor below. They can be living or dead but their invention must be patented.

From the nominees, we will select a shortlist of up to ten and in early February we will launch a ‘declaration of love’- inviting 4iP Council followers and those who share our passion for invention to vote for their favourite. The winner will be announced just before Valentine’s Day.

Though we are having some fun for Valentine’s Day, we are serious about our love of invention and believe that strong patent systems foster innovation. For several years the European Patent Office (EPO) has done an amazing job of raising the visibility of living European inventors through its European Inventor Award. We encourage you to also follow and support this inspiring and important initiative.
