Technology transfer, rapid sharing and access to knowledge assets are playing major role in the global Covid-19 response. The uptake of new technology transfer practices, including digital and data-driven, increased role of the various intermediaries and several novel intellectual property (IP) related access initiatives, such as socially responsible and impact licencing models have demonstrated that knowledge and intellectual asset management is a key tool to address the demanding societal needs related to the pandemic.
Robust and resilient R&I leads to scientific progress and enables the ecosystem delivering and adapting solutions for the society and the challenges it faces. IP and use of different types of collaboration contracts, licenses and pooling agreements are key elements of the process by facilitating technology sharing, increasing scaling up and thereby creating new capacities and industries.
In line with the EU IP action plan and the Report on an intellectual property action plan to support EU’s recovery and resilience by the European Parliament, this action will promote better IP management in research and innovation in view to materialise excellent research into innovation that is benefitting the society and businesses in the EU and beyond.
This activity will deliver an IP toolbox for helping companies, public research organisations including universities and the relevant intermediary entities to establish quick and efficient co-operation and licences with businesses, as well as practical examples of incentives which can motivate private sector to commit voluntary licensing for other areas e.g. climate change emergency.
This action will harvest the lessons learned as well as practical experiences, including results from FP7 and H2020, and assess how these new practices and tools could be transferred to other emergencies e.g. addressing climate change effects (floods, droughts, fires etc.) and helping the society to increase preparedness for any future emergencies.
