Post by EPO / PATSTAT Support » Tue Apr 23, 2019 11:58 am

The EPO is pleased to announce a new call for proposals for funding under its Academic Research Programme.

The 2019 call for projects addresses the following thematic areas spanning various disciplines including economics, IP management, and data sciences:
  • Measuring the impact of patents on innovation
  • The role of patents in technology transfer, commercialisation, and/or investment decisions
    Patent services and intermediaries
  • Patents and disruptive technologies (AI, Blockchain, 3D, etc.)
  • Impact of public policy and the regulatory landscape on the use of patents by SMEs and PROs across Europe
  • Patents and climate change mitigation technologies
  • Advanced use of PATSTAT, patent searching, and analytics (e.g. classification, potential of IP linked open data)
