IFIA President’s Message
Date: 15 December 2014
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I send my greetings to inventors worldwide and all those who are trying to protect inventors, as the newly elected president of the International Federation of Inventors ‘Associations. First of all, I am grateful for the trust of the inventors’ organizations of 85 countries.
I take to this task in the age of increasing globalization, after the presidency of, Dr. Freidrich Burmester from Germany, Mr.Leif Nordstrand from Norway, Mr.Sam Green from Gt Britain, Mr.Lennart Nilsson from Sweden, Mr.Farag Moussa from Switzerland and finally Dr.András Vedres from Hungary who expanded the Federation to become a worldwide organization over the last forty-six years. They remain our spiritual leaders as honorary presidents.
During my presidency I will work hard to represent IFIA. This work will only be effective if the various bodies of IFIA (General Assembly, ExCo committees, working groups, member organizations) form into a community, and with hopefully a further increasing membership of IFIA, we take to these tasks together. God help us to accomplish our tasks.
Finally I would like to inform you about first steps of our programs for the future with below details:
1- Updating IFIA structure with the latest technology
2- Establishing the IFIA branch in Asia, Europe, America, Africa and Arabin countries
3- Communicating with effective and operative international organization absorbing support for the inventors
4- Creation of commercial context for the independent inventors
5- Holding annual workshops for intellectual property and commercialization of inventions
Alireza Rastegar the President
