How to monitor innovation development, IP and exploitation during the project

Learn new tools for better project preparation and management:
- Exploitation Matrix for exploring options and making choices personalised to your project
- DIPS methodology for making the Plan for Exploitation and for monitoring its implementation during the project
Target groups
- Researchers responsible for technical WPs in EU/national cooperation projects
- Project managers responsible for managing EU/national cooperation projects
- Innovation managers seeking or involved in EU/national cooperation projects

- Bring shared understanding across functions and partners. Build common vision and higher impact.
- Enhance preparation of call with more specific specification
- Facilitate the setup and monitoring of IP management during the project

What former participants say
- “Patentopolis matrix and methodology DIPS are good tools for non-IP professionals. These guided workflows help EU project partners to understand how to cooperate with each other, and see quickly where/how to look for win-wins but also gives and takes. These tools should be applied roughly when preparing the call to strengthen it and get better evaluation; the same tools should be reapplied more thoroughly once the project is granted, both at the beginning to set up the plan and directions and throughout the project to monitor implementation and measure real impact.”

Grant office, University of Technology (Sweden)
-“IP strategy is essential for business success, and I don’t want to rely on just gut feeling or hope as a strategy. Therefore, it makes sense to follow an effective methodology like DIPS of Patentopolis, since this is a well-structured, clear and logical approach. Highly recommended!”

Director IP Management, Evonik Nutrition & Care (Germany)
- “Help you to understand how to cooperate with partners, and see quickly where to look for win-wins but also gives and takes”
- “Brilliant; it’s been a real eye opener. The workshop was very helpful”
