The representatives of the State Agency on Intellectual Property (AGEPI) participated, on June 16, in a Knowing IPR Hub Platform training and testing seminar, organized online within the framework of the project Fostering Innovations in the Danube Region through Knowledge Engineering and IPR Management (KnowING IPR), a project in which AGEPI is a partner.
The KnowING IPR project aims to facilitate innovation in the Danube Region by developing a transnational open access Knowing Hub platform, which will provide the tools necessary to analyze and determine the state of the art in a particular field, track the progress of emerging technologies, identify solutions to various problems providing free access to millions of patent documents around the world and also to an impressive number of publications in various technical fields.
Additionally, the platform will include information and guidance services for the effective management of intellectual property rights (IPR) and for support to commercialization of research results and technology transfer.
In addition to the platform, the project will result in a series of public policy recommendations for better exploitation of IPR in the Danube region.
The KnowING IPR project consists of a regional consortium comprising partners from the following countries: Slovenia, Slovakia, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Romania, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.
The opportunities launched within the project, as well as information about the activities implemented during the project implementation are announced on the official website of the project:
