Speaker:Nigel Clarke & Udo Gennari, European Patent Office (EPO)
Topic:Innovation, technology transfer and patent information
Excerpt:The EPO has recently carried out a survey which confirms that patent information is a necessary resource for innovation processes. Furthermore the survey suggests that tech transfer is an important common activity throughout all phases of innovation. In this presentation we share the results of our survey. We will also illustrate the role of the European Patent Office as the foremost provider of patent information, and demonstrate the role of multipliers such as the European Enterprise Network as providers of expertise, for tech transfer.
