- Vice President, IPR Policy
Monica Magnusson is Vice President of IPR Policy at IPR & Licensing within the Ericsson group, reporting to Ericsson’s Chief Intellectual Property Officer Gustav Brismark. In this role, she is responsible for establishing and driving Ericsson’s position in discussions related to patents and patent licensing, such as the current IPR Policy debate in standard development organizations like the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). She and her global team have corporate responsibility for advocating Ericsson’s views on these issues towards regulators and policy makers across the world. These are operations she has gradually built over the past nine years.
Monica Magnusson joined Ericsson in 1998, as a patent engineer and part of a team focused on the forming of Ericsson’s patent portfolio for WCDMA related inventions. Her experience with Ericsson also includes managing patent attorney groups in Sweden and in the US, and out-licensing patent portfolios in North America.
Prior to joining Ericsson, Monica was a patent agent with Albihns, an intellectual property consultancy in Stockholm, and before that an R&D engineer with Siemens-Elema, Stockholm. She holds a Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm.
