Main facts

Main facts

  • Part of a Europe-wide project to raise IP awareness and improve IP education

  • Origin: following March 2006 workshop on “How to integrate patent-related IP teaching in universities” with representatives of EPO Academy, NPOs, universities and TTOs

  • Organisation of 14 roving workshops covering 19 EPO member states

  • Following discussions at roving workshops, establishment of a "road map", i.e. a plan for universities including

    • Stock taking of current IP teaching in universities

    • Identification of needs resulting in specific activities with timetable

  • Implementation started in 2009 for most of the Road Maps

  • Currently 14 Road Maps covering 16 member states


Implementation

Implementation

  • Problems encountered

  • Economic crisis slowing down the implementation

  • Outcome of 1st Progress Conference in 2010:

    • severe budget cuts

    • lack of leadership

  • Solution

  • Appointment by EPO together with respective NPOs of 13 « Road Map Coordinators » (RMCs) in the first quarter of 2011 for 18 months

  • Result

  • Road Map Steering Committees set up in all countries

  • All Road Maps revised in autumn 2011

  • Annual Progress Conference in October 2011 showed clear progress in the implementation


Some of the progresses achieved

Some of the progresses achieved

  • Integration of IP in university curricula - set up of bachelor, master and specialisation courses, some compulsory e.g. Poland, Italy (Bologna PhD students -> 2000)

  • On-line platform on IP teaching e.g. Belgium

  • Enhanced awareness on IP through workshops e.g. Bulgaria, Turkey, CZ

  • Compilation & publication on IP e.g. list of IP teaching materials

  • Creation of national IP working groups e.g. Latvia


Some of the progresses achieved 2

Some of the progresses achieved (2)

  • Creation of IP network including IP coordinators, IP teachers, IP « Chairs » at universities e.g. Latvia, Spain

  • Translation of PTK into national language and training of university staff, e.g. Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Turkey, Czech Republic

  • Patent Appointment System, Turkey

  • Elaboration of a « Code of Good Practice concerning IP knowledge in universities », Romania


Additional epo support provided

Additional EPO support provided

  • EPO IP teaching material

    • Patent Teaching Kit
