The APM is a joint initiative of the German Association of Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK), the Federation of German Industry (BDI), and the German Brands Association.

Well-known companies from different sectors participate in the APM to promote conditions, in which innovative activities can develop and count on effective protection.
