Highlighting inventors

Intellectual property rights are at the center of the technologies that drive Ericsson. It is important to emphasize patents and licensing as a means to fuel continued innovation.

Below we spotlight Ericsson inventors and researchers, but also the importance of innovation for today and tomorrow. The videos illustrate Ericsson's serial inventiveness, our commitment to open standards and fair recognition for inventors.

Inventors with different perspectives create technology that works for everyone

At Ericsson, women inventors are behind the some of the most important developments in cellular networks, the technology that make our phones just work. Yet, in the U.S., women earn half of the doctoral degrees in science and engineering, but only 10 percent of U.S. patent holders are female. It’s important that all our company’s inventors are empowered to protect their intellectual property.
