In November 2012 an agreement was signed on cooperation between the Intellectual Property Committee and the Technology Transfer Office at Karolinska Institutet concerning the practical application of intellectual property and research. The Technology Transfer Office at Karolinska was established in November 2010. Its role is to assist staff and students there in transferring technology from intellectual property and research results.

In 2012, formal collaboration began between technology transfer offices in the Nordic countries in the field of health sciences, under the name NORTTH.  Participants in this collaboration are technology transfer offices working for the University of Iceland, Uppsala University, the University of Helsinki, Aalto University, the University of Copenhagen, Aarhus University, Oslo Science Park, research institutions in Bergen and Karolinska Instituten.

The University of Iceland Division of Science and Innovation and the Intellectual Property Committee run a Patent Information Centre in collaboration with the Patent Office. The role of the information centre is to provide general information on patents and other intellectual property rights, as well as assistance with the initial search in public databases for patents. The centre does not provide assistance with producing patent applications.

In June 2013, the Intellectual Property Committee and the Danish Patent and Trademark Office (DKPTO) signed a cooperative agreement on the use and promotion of IP Marketplace, designed by the Danish Patent and Trademark Office. The purpose of the agreement is to make it easier for institutions/companies in Iceland to market their intellectual property rights, as well as look for business opportunities and collaborative partners in matters relating to intellectual property rights.  

The Intellectual Property Committee is a member of ASTPProton, the Alliance of Technology Transfer Professionals, and an employee of the committee has attended the alliance's annual conferences in recent years.
