Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) issues – knowledge you need to know about the patenting procedure

Rationale

In many cases, the term “Technology Transfer” refers to the transfer of rights of intangible intellectual property protected by a patent, copyright, trade secret or trademark between parties. This module will aim to underline the role of Intellectual Property Rights in the Technology Transfer process and increase the SmEs capacity to exploit the intellectual property (IP) system to enhance their competitiveness.

This seminar is organised in collaboration with regional Patent Office’s. it is mostly a capacity building seminar dedicated to understanding and using effectively IPR’s. In order to demonstrate the IPR dimension of TT the agenda is considered with important IPR issues whilst presenting key points in technology transfer agreements.

National IP office speakers will present the fundamentals of IPR’s and the ways of handling them within different contexts. The international dimension of IPR’s and typical IP problems appearing in Transnational Technology Transfer will also be addressed from visiting speakers from the European Patent Office (EPO), World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) or IPR Help-Desk.

I addition reference will be made to the tools used to handle and leverage. There are manifold benefits to IPR’s and they vary according to different situations. As such one should be able to distinguish the right tools that need to be used as well as have the skills to effectively exploit them. Regional and National Offices have a range o tools that can be used.

The IPR seminar provide an opportunity for SmEs to increase their ability for creating, identifying, protecting, using and leveraging intellectual property assets and obtain a competitive advantage in the TTT-process. It is thought that other potential developers/ recipients of technology such as RTOs, universities, and research centres may well benefit from this seminar.
