The EIC Board met with the university associations to discuss the provisions on intellectual property (IP). The meeting demonstrated a shared objective to promote knowledge transfer and acknowledge the vital role of knowledge transfer offices within research organisations with the overall aim of increasing the innovation impact of results.
The meeting also demonstrated the complex and inter-related set of issues including ownership, access rights, royalties and license fees in spin-outs, costs of IPR protection and equity shares in spin-offs, and set a common line of understanding of the innovation support environment in the public research organizations to support result based exploitation.
