Can IPR protection processes apply effectively, be facilitated and co-evolve within the uprising Open Resources, Circular and Sustainable ecosystems’ environment? What does it take to make it so?
The IPR4SC project targets the lack of intellectual property informatics and management skills, the so called ‘IP for business’ skills that are enriched with green, digital and entrepreneurial attributes. Their lack impose a significant barrier to the successful engagement of new, digitally empowered transitions towards increased sustainability and circularity, green and accelerated economic growth achievement. The general aim of the project is to increase the innovation capacity of EU inventors being trained in HE and VET organizations, in designing and implementing sustainable and circular economy businesses by boosting their ‘IP for business’ skills.
The project will develop educational offerings to be delivered by the HEI and VET providers that are adapted to the various target groups, foster the utilization of open resources, and facilitate the process of putting ‘IP for business’ into practice.
IPR4SC is focused on the following target groups: HEIs and technology transfer offices, spin-outs, and students from technical, natural and business sciences; VETs and their learners, as well as SMEs – especially start-ups. Other stakeholders, such as patent offices, IP lawyers, large companies and policymakers are also targeted.
The invoked partners will deliver a detailed IP for business skills needs analysis, develop an IT tool (IPR Monitor) as a navigating, decision-tree-based online tool, design and deliver the Innovation and Intellectual Property for Green (I2P) for Green course and modules (IP for green skills), the Simulation lab (IP for digital skills), and the innovative format of an IP Co-design Jam (strengthening entrepreneurial skills). The project is co-developed and co-delivered by a partnership of 4 universities, 2 technology & innovation providers, 2 VET providers, and 2 partners supporting the consortium by providing professional services in project management and dissemination. A number of associated partners, including patent offices and other organisations are also involved.
The project aims to increase the innovation capacity of EU inventors, trained in HE and VET organizations, in designing and implementing sustainable and circular economy businesses by boosting IP for business skills.
During IPR4SC a number of educational offerings that are adapted to the various target groups will be developed, to be delivered by the HEI and VET providers, through the use of open resources, supporting and putting IP for business into practice.
