Joint EPO (European Patent Office) – UNICA event: Introducing the EPO and its European Patent Academy offer to UNICA | 21 September 2021, 15:30 – 17:00 CEST
This online session has been specifically designed for the UNICA members. The speakers gave general overview of the importance of patents as a source of information for research and new projects and as a means of protecting inventions.
The focus was set on what the EPO does in terms of dissemination of Intellectual Property (IP) knowledge in Universities in Europe, more specifically on how to best protect and exploit the research results by raising awareness on IP and what the benefits are to know more about IP.
The online session illustrated what challenges are currently faced in universities and what can be done in cooperation with the European Patent Office to increase IP awareness and IP education.
