Today, on 12th October, PureNano had an internal seminar on “IPR and knowledge management” by AXIA Innovation presenting the main features concerning:
• IPR Management
• Patent Mapping methodology
• Type of IPs
Under the framework of European-funded projects (H2020) and PureNano, AXIA showcased the rules and agreement for the ownership of results and explained how an inventor can protect their invention from the beginning of the project until the end.
In this seminar, AXIA explained the pros and cons of each type of IP protection available (e.g industrial design, trade secret, utility model, etc), the importance of the functionality of a patent, and patent application processes.
Finally, the last section was dedicated to studying PureNano IPR cases and the usefulness of Patent Mapping for Exploitation purposes.
