Citizens are inventive. They formulate ideas for new products and solutions that companies can acquire, further develop for the market and sell. This in turn leads to innovation and growth in businesses, and stimulates job creation and valuable revenue for society.

Each year the Inventor Advisory Service helps thousands of Danes explore their ideas, with the aim of turning these ideas into validated, commercializable inventions, products and services.

Our advisory services are free, independent, confidential and offered as a means of help-to-self-help. Our methodology is very hands-on and practical and as an inventor you play a very important role as you will be wholly immersed in the ‘advisory’ process. We rely on your willingness to collaborate and persistence in gathering necessary and valuable insights needed for your ideas and/or inventions to succeed.

Do you have a great idea or invention you would like to bring to life? Are you looking for strong, practical sparring and guidance during the process? Then send us a description of your ideas or inventions. We look forward to hearing from you.

(Presently, we are limited to offering advisory services to Danish citizens.)

An important common feature is that they always occurs in one person, one citizen!
Read our mission

The IAS has its own digital prototype workshop. Experience tells us that the best ideas emerge through experiments and practical testing in real life settings. Once ideas become tangible, they are more easily understood and communicated to others.

Supplemented by our advisory service, the prototype workshop is exactly about creating an experimental framework where you can develop your ideas right from the initial phase and all the way to the market.

To us, prototyping is a process of building simple prototypes that are continuously being rebuilt and reshaped in parallel to examining our ideas.
