Intellectual Property (IP) in public research is not limited to patents and to the dissemination of technologies through licenses. It has an important role in particular in multipartner research projects where proper IP management is considered by funding agencies as a prerequisite for financing.
Today, IP is considered as an important asset of a public research organization. The value of IP as an asset strongly depends on a common understanding of its usage and on the way it
is managed in public research organizations
Open to scientists and researchers involved in scientific programs aiming at developing new technologies, the objective of this seminar is to raise awareness on the importance of IP, to review best practices of IP management in particular in collaborative R&D between public research organizations and industry and to present cross-organizational approaches in the management and the dissemination of IP.
