Final Report - IPRAM (Intellectual property rights and assets management course)

Project ID: 37626
Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

An unsatisfactory knowledge about how to protect research results for use by, and transfer to industry, as well as insufficient experience in the commercialisation of patented inventions hamper a rapid technology transfer and thereby the development of the European biotechnology market. For that reason, it is difficult for many European countries and especially for new Member States to enjoy the full benefits of their investments in life science research and thereby to leverage their wealth, their economic and social growth, as well as their quality of life.

Therefore the main ambitions of IPRAM was to raise awareness among life scientists and members of technology transfer offices of the commercial potential of their research and the research projects performed within their research institutes, respectively. This is to stimulate technology transfer from academy to industry and to encourage bio-entrepreneurship in the academic community. Their final report covers the aims and objectives.
