IPRAM - Intellectual Property Rights and Assets Management CourseAbout the project
The Project is completed.
The main ambitions of the project are to raise awareness among life scientists of the commercial potential of their research, to stimulate technology transfer from academy to industry and to encourage bio-entrepreneurship in the academic community.
To reach this goal the IPRAM consortium will organize and give one week lectures (free of charges) on patent law and commercialization of IPR in eight different countries throughout Europe.
It is also possible to enrol for selected course modules instead of the complete lecture week.
In order to develop a greater awareness among academic researchers, academic group leaders, and scientists from early stage biotechnology companies for the commercialization of their R&D results, the IPRAM course aims to introduce the knowledge about essential aspects of IPR in the field of life sciences and biotechnology to scientists across the Europe. The one week IPRAM course will provide scientists and university technology transfer office members with:
- the knowledge about essential aspects of IPR,
- the skills how to make use of the information given in patents in their daily scientific work,
- the techniques to evaluate IPR,
- and the knowledge how to commercialize IPR through out-licensing.
The lectures will be completed by various case studies from the life science sector that will be presented and discussed in detail.
