Proud to nominate our clients Med-El for European Inventor Award 2014

Downing IP have been working on behalf of Med-El (Medical Electronics) supporting them with their patent applications in the European Patent Office and have recently nominated them for the European Inventor Award 2014.

The European Inventor Award annually honours scientists worldwide who substantially contribute to the technological progress and economic growth. The official presentation of the award winner will take place on 17th June in Berlin, Germany. Austria-based MED-EL is a leading provider of hearing implant systems with 29 subsidiaries worldwide. The family-owned business is one of the pioneers in the industry.

Michael Downing from Downing IP has worked on several of their patent applications in the EPO, and nominated them for the prestigious award; “We’re really proud to work on behalf of companies like Med-El whose innovations bring such huge benefits. When we saw that nominations were open for the award, we thought of Med-El immediately, and are delighted that the Hochmairs have been selected as finalists. Our fingers are crossed for them”

Downing IP have worked closely with their US attorney who prepare the patent filings ready for them to be lodged at the European Patent Office. Downing IP then work with the European Patent Office to ensure the patent gets the best possible protection.
