Best Practices for IPR and Technology Transfer in Nanotechnology Developments

Objective

The lack of models for technology transfer at nanotechnology developments is of increasing concern for the sector. This CSA will fulfil this gap providing guidelines for technology transfer and rules for IPR and license agreements in nanotechnology developments. To achieve these objectives, a consortium is formed by: 1) Key European research centres in different areas of nano and converging technologies, 2) Outstanding agencies for IPR advice, 3) Market analyst experts,industry associations and venture capitals, as end clients of IP. Constructing value chains of the transfer of each technology the consortium will analyse specific applications of the different areas of the nanotechnology R&D European strategy: medical applications, information technologies, energy, materials, manufacturing, instrumentation, food, environment and security. Our objective is to classify the technology application areas of nanotechnology into different clusters according to: development costs, market time, complexity of licensing, etc. In parallel, a mapping of the technology and actual and forthcoming market will be analysed according to: competitiveness, geographical area, development potential, risks etc. Specific data mining tools will help to conclude the key worldwide actors of development and commercialisation of the different technologies. Also, actual IPR cultures and technology transfer rules will be listed according to the features of their market and technology. Matching these IPR technology transfer models with the concluded value chains and market and technology mapping, will allow concluding business models and setting efficient rules for technology transfer. All models will be discussed at consortium seminars, where general algorithms are expected to be excerpted. Specific guidelines will be given for research institutions and SMEs for efficient transfer of their prototypes to the market, along with a focus for the valorization of EU FP7 funded research projects
