The Fit for Health 2.0 project supported by the European IPR Helpdesk, IsMeTT S.r.l. and Fondazione Ri.MED invites you to participate in the international IP exploitation training event:

International Training for the Exploitation of EU Project Results with a focus on IP in the field of Health and Biotechnology

The strategic use and management of Intellectual Property (IP) – in business as well as in international research initiatives – is essential for strengthening the European scientific and technological base, boosting innovation and ensuring growth in the EU. In this context the new EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020, places even more emphasis on systematic IP exploitation strategies as a means to better protect innovation initiatives and to reap commercial and economic benefits from EU-funded research.

Therefore this IP training event will address the overall topic of how to create value through professional management and exploitation of IP – with a special focus on IP in the field of health and biotechnology. Following a very practical and comprehensive training approach, participants will be made familiar with central concepts and strategies of how to turn intellectual assets into value-creating innovations.

Target Group:
SMEs, research institutes, university hospital practitioners with concrete results from EU projects e.g FP, H2020, Eurostars etc.

Event costs:
The event is free of charge. However, a registration is mandatory. The event is NOT open to consultants.

The organisers of the training do not offer travel grants or any similar arrangements.
