Inductions are made into the IP Hall of Fame on an annual basis. Inductees are chosen by members of the IP Hall of Fame Academy, which comprises individuals already inducted into the IP Hall of Fame and other acknowledged IP leaders. Selecting from the nominations it receives from the global IP community, the Academy chooses the three nominees it considers to have made the most outstanding contributions to the development of today’s IP system.

The nomination process to find the inductees for 2020 is now open. Make your nominations here before the 20th of March.

The names of the inductees will be made public in April and an official ceremony to honour those selected will be held during IAM‘s IPBC Global conference in Chicago from 14th to 16th of June.
