ip4inno is a project funded by the European Commission as a part of the Sixth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development.

Its main aim is to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) enhance their understanding and use of intellectual property rights with a view to promoting innovation and competitiveness in line with the European Commission's Lisbon goals.

The European Commission and the European Patent Office have agreed to run another two year project, intending to increase the range and reach of existing ip4inno teaching materials. New modules are proposed, as well as updates, translations and e-learning versions

The overall objective of the IP4INNO II Project is to increase understanding and usage of intellectual property (IP) by SMEs, with a view to increasing innovation and competitiveness in line with the Lisbon goals.

The specific objective of the project is to maintain and improve the business support service developed under IP4INNO.

The operational objectives of the IP4INNO II are the following:

- To gather and analyse additional training material;
- To create new training modules complementing the ones produced in the former project;
- To review and update training modules developed in the former project;
- To support the IP4INNO training masters;
- To update and improve the functionalities of the project homepage;
- To further develop the IP4INNO Learning platform;
- To promote the project activities across Europe

The ip4inno project developed its activities between January 2007 and December 2008. The main aim of ip4inno was to increase the understanding and usage of intellectual property (IP) by Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), with a view to increasing innovation and competitiveness in line with the Lisbon goals.

Target groups

Ip4inno was aimed principally at SMEs through training staff (“train the trainers”) in entities supporting small businesses, such as Technology Transfer Offices, institutions involved in the innovation process (e.g. from Chambers of Commerce or Innovation Agencies) or Business Advisory Bodies and Incubators. Ip4inno II will maintain the same target groups.

European SMEs are often perceived as having little knowledge or interest in IP as a field. The study showed that this generalised perception is based on fact; SMEs do not, in the overwhelming majority, have sufficient IP knowledge, nor do they seek to acquire this knowledge of their own accord due to mainly either time or financial constraints. IP awareness is also a challenge; many SMEs are not aware of the variety of IP methods and tools available. The study found that intermediaries were the group who needed less training in IP, when compared to SMEs and researchers. Although knowledge may not be high, awareness was at an acceptable level. However, intermediaries needed training on how to sell the message to SMEs that IP is important and should be part of their business plan. This was one of the most important and insightful findings for the development of the training modules, in fact being used to develop one session purely devoted to communicating the IP message in an audience-friendly capacity. Technology transfer officers and researchers constitute perhaps one of the most difficult groups to target. Important organisational and culture barriers exist to protecting research and intellectual assets; the publish or perish mentality of academia and an unstable / non-existent IP budget in Higher Education institutions are two of the main culprits for releasing findings and inventions with no protection.

Around 1100 trainers in 64 events were trained in ip4inno. These participants will be direct beneficiaries of the new activities developed in ip4inno II. More specifically 430 ip4inno participants have access already to a password protected area enabling a download of editable PowerPoint versions of ip4inno training modules.

The ip4inno II project has been designed based on the perceived success of the first phase (January 2007 to December 2008). In this first project phase, the consortium produced numerous outputs which have been identified for further dissemination, not least of which are the twelve ip4inno training modules. The subsequent activities are based upon the need to maximise the reach and impact of those actions. Activities have been divided into workpackages (I – VIII) for ease of reference and for better internal planning.

For each activity
, a description of the workpackage objectives, the activities to be undertaken and the expected deliverables has been detailed below.

Timing will be shown in section 5. The list of workpackages is as follows:

Ref. Workpackage Title
I. TECHNICAL / SUBCONTRACTOR MANAGEMENT
II. DISSEMINATION AND PROMOTION
III. MAINTENANCE AND UTILITY OF CESM
IV. COLLECTION OF TRAINING MATERIALS
V. TRAINING MATERIALS (PLUS QUALITY CHECK)
VI. DEVELOPMENT OF E-LEARNING MATERIALS
VII. MANAGEMENT AND SUPPORT FOR THE NETWORK OF TRAINERS
VIII SUSTAINABILITY AND MONITORING ACTIONS

Applications should be made on this form by the deadline of 7 May 2010.
