We are pleased to inform that the second issue of the European IPR Helpdesk Bulletin has been released and is now available on-line.
The present publication focuses on the new European Commission (EC) IPR Strategy underpinning the Europe 2020 Agenda for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth of the internal market. Likewise it zooms in on the Recommendation the EC adopted for a deeper cooperation between academia and industry as well as on the enhancement of the Public Research Organisations IP management, necessary to better exploit publicly-funded research results. Besides dealing with the specific IP challenges of small businesses, it will also look at IP in the context of an FP7 research project. With the management of IP becoming increasingly important at the proposal stage we provide you with a successful project example. Interviews and a case study also form part of this second Bulletin.
