Sisvel is driven by a belief in the importance of collaboration, ingenuity and efficiency to bridge the needs of both patent owners and those who wish to access their technologies. In a complex and constantly evolving marketplace, our guiding principle is to create a level playing field with the development and implementation of flexible, accessible, commercialisation solutions.
