KIC-InnoEnergy’s new Intellectual Property (IP) and Patents Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)
Intellectual Property (IP) and Patents Massive Open Online Course
The specialisation, entitled Competitive Intelligence of Effective Exploitation of Patents (CIEEP), responds to the ongoing rise in applications for European patents. Last year saw the number of filings reach nearly 279,000 – a record high and reflective of the significant levels of innovation taking place across Europe.
CIEEP has been designed in partnership with leading patent training providers ZBM, the technology transfer office of UPC and Competitive Intelligence Consultants IALE and is made up of three modules:
- Patents, patentability, and patent infringement
- Competitive intelligence and technology scouting
- IP commercialisation
It’s aimed specifically at companies or individuals developing new technologies in energy or biotech. It will address how to get the maximum value from Research and Development (R&D) projects, how to protect IP or make existing patents more profitable.
