Duration: 75 minutes
Horizon 2020 is a very attractive and flexible programme to incorporate intellectual assets into proper exploitation strategies for further technology development or business solutions. The new work programme spanning the upcoming period of 2018-2020 will have EU funding of around €30 billion, making it by far the largest single integrated programme of publicly funded research and innovation during this period across the EU.
Boosting impacts including more effective dissemination and exploitation of research results (Intellectual Property/IP) has been the guiding principle throughout the elaboration of the new calls for proposals – creating new challenges and expectations to be met by applicants/consortia.
The workshop will therefore address the overall topic of how to create value through professional management and exploitation of IP. Based on 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 and increase the impact of Horizon 2020 project results – as expected by project evaluators .
The workshop addresses proper exploitation strategies for proposals ranging from basic research to systems operations.
· How will results be protected?
· How will Joint Ownership be treated?
· How will the exchange of existing knowledge and know-how (i.e. “background”) and results among partners and external stakeholders be managed? What are the best conditions to grant access rights?
· What are the best and most viable routes for exploitation of Horizon 2020 results?
