Developing Skills in Intellectual Property Rights Open Data for Sustainability and Circularity

Framework: Erasmus+ Programme
Duration of the project: 01.06.2022. – 31.05.2025.

Aim of the project:

The project targets the lack of intellectual property informatics and management skills, i.e. ‘IP for business’ skills, that are enriched with green, digital and entrepreneurial skills. Their lack can present a barrier to successfully engage in the new (digitally enabled) transitions towards more sustainability and circularity, whilst achieving economic growth.
The general aim of the project is to increase the innovation capacity of EU inventors, trained in HE and VET organizations, in designing and implementing sustainable and circular economy businesses by boosting IP for business skills.
The project will develop educational offerings to be delivered by the HEI and VET providers that are adapted to the various target groups, include the use of open resources, and support putting IP for business into practice.

Activity of PBN:

PBN will be the leader of WP7 – Dissemination and exploitation of results. Given its wide network, PBN will reach many stakeholders. Besides this main contribution, PBN will take part in all the other project activities. In particular, PBN will support the partners in reaching companies for the training need analysis (WP2) and testing the WP3 platform. It will contribute to developing training materials in WP3 and help in recruiting start-ups to take part in the I2P for Green course pilots. It will also contribute to the revision and validation of WP5 and WP6 training contents.
