There has been an increasing awareness of the role that intellectual property (IP) rights play in encouraging innovation and creativity. Inventors, creators, and entrepreneurs are stepping up to innovation challenges, using their energy and ingenuity, curiosity and creativity to steer a course towards a better future. Innovative, energetic and creative minds are helping to drive the changes we need to move to a more sustainable future. IP rights can support the creation of a better future.
NOVA’s ecosystem is no exception to this paradigm. That is why NOVA’s entrepreneurial and creative spirit ought to be celebrated whilst building the foundations of a culture that fosters and inspires other to pursue their aspirations, ingenuity, creativity, vision and courage.
Hosted by the NOVA Impact office, ImPact @ NOVA is structured following a parallel technical workshop (WS) approach, according to the participants’ field of knowledge. Each workshop entails introductory remarks on the importance of IP on research projects. It also stimulates fruitful discussions regarding the actual challenges that scientists, researchers and another academic and non-academic staff face when managing their projects, IP portfolio and knowledge transfer strategies.
This is a great opportunity to interact with experts in this field, namely patent attorneys from J. Pereira da Cruz, which powers this event.
