Managing IP has released the timeline for publishing the results of the 2021 MIP Awards and IP STARS research

Managing IP’s research analysts are currently working on the 2021 edition of the IP STARS rankings and MIP Awards programme, a research project that started in September 2020. We have closed the firm submission portal and started conducting surveys as well as independent research on the information we received.

Below is a snapshot of our results publication timeline, which is subject to change. The shortlists and winners list for the MIP Awards programme are published on this website, whereas the IP STARS rankings are published on ipstars.com.
