Specific Projects
Activities of CIPTT may be applied in the following project ideas:

1. Identifying IPR-related policies, being actual in the EU and neighboring third countries

Identifying IPR-related policies, being actual in the EU and neighboring third countries, and proposing ways of its implementation in Ukraine and other Post-Soviet countries in support of sustainable development in the EU and “neighboring policy” – countries.

Types of action may include:

–and IPR training. Defining ways and means of approximation of national IPR and innovation legislation to international and EU standards, improvement of enforcement of intellectual property

– Conducting complex comparative analysis of innovation activity support legislation in the EU, EU member states, Ukraine as well as other NIS countries. Conducting comparative analyses of the experience of Poland, Hungary, Estonia, Bulgaria and other East – European countries in organization of approximation of legislation.

– After undertaking of such comparative study there could be worked out the suggestions and drafts of laws on developing of the national legislation for the sector of innovation and intellectual property, based on best practice of the EU and the EU member-states.

Such researches can be conducted within framework of projects of European Research Council (supports frontier research, cross disciplinary proposals and pioneering ideas) and in Program «Societal Challenges» (bring together resources and knowledge across different fields, technologies and disciplines, including social sciences and the humanities. This will cover activities from research to market with a new focus on innovation-related activities), including international cooperation and EU-Eastern Partnership aspects as well.

2. IPR - related aspects of strengthening cooperation and networking between researchers at European and international level

CIPTT can also participate in research projects in different thematic priorities (calls of Program «Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH)» (IPR - related aspects of strengthening cooperation and networking between researchers at European and international level and in reinforcing the European academic environment), all topics of Program «Societal Challenges» and Program «Industrial Leadership» (aimed to speed up development of the technologies and innovations that will underpin tomorrow's businesses and help innovative European SMEs to grow into world-leading companies.):

CIPTT can conduct management of intellectual property, created within framework of the project, helping consortium members better exploit and transfer their findings to industry. And it is expected to encourage industrialists, especially SMEs, more fully exploit European intellectual property legislation.

Activities can include:

Development of an IPR information exchange system, establishment of patent clusters according to products, and dissemination of the project results to stakeholders, including relevant external organizations, industry, networks, and policy-makers.

Creating of patent pools ready to be proposed to external organizations for joint management and industrial partners for technology transfer and commercialization.

3. SME-tailored support to stimulate all forms of innovation in SMEs by managing and protection their intellectual & industrial property

Center can become a party in the project, oriented at SMEs participation in the EU funded research projects (Projects of the calls "Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies", providing dedicated support for research, development and demonstration and call on the topic «Innovation in SMEs <http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/h2020-section/innovation-smes>», providing SME-tailored support to stimulate all forms of innovation in SMEs by managing and protection their intellectual & industrial property), independently on the research topic of project.

CIPTT can perform part of the mentioned project, aimed at improving of the competitiveness of the enterprises through the technology transfer and innovation exploitation. Its main objectives can be the technology transfer both to and from Ukraine, the exploitation of EU research results, the stimulation of the capacity of local firms to adopt new technology, the creation of synergies between the Center activities and other NIS - regional and national service providers as well as with Commission supported.

The Center can organize and will actively participate in brokerage events and company missions; it could exchange its technology portfolio with other participants. Additionally, Center can organize a number of information days, specialized workshops and seminars addressed to the Ukrainian SMEs, business associations for stimulating the capacity of local firms to adopt new technologies as well as meetings with research centers, SMEs and researchers for the exploitation of research results and technology transfer. The protection of the intellectual property rights and the financing of innovation are also very important issues that will be taken into consideration.

4. Creating an Intellectual property infrastructure at the regional and byregional levels in particular brunch

Center can participate in the project of the Program «Research Infrastructures» (directions «Developing the European research infrastructures for 2020 and beyond» - ensuring implementation and operation of the European research infrastructures, including the development of regional partner facilities; integration of and access to national research infrastructures; and «Fostering the innovation potential of research infrastructures and their human capital» - encouraging research infrastructures to act as early adopters of technology, to promote R&D partnerships with industry, to facilitate industrial use of research infrastructures and to stimulate the creation of innovation clusters.)

Such project can be proposed as another variant of current project "SCANBALT intellectual Property Knowledge Network", that will be oriented at another European region.

Such Infrastructure can be aimed at increasing the global competitiveness of the definite brunch of industry in the Eastern European and Central Asian countries (EECA) by facilitating the development of a sustainable intellectual infrastructure, capable of creating value from brunch researches. Through the creation of an active network of IPR practitioners, researchers/academics, authorities, business managers and entrepreneurs in the EECA - EU regions, this infrastructure will act both to strengthen regional IPR expertise - in IPR creation, IPR management, and its implications on scientific research and development; broaden general IP awareness.

One of the types of activity can be creation of the Internet – accessible Database of results of experimental works of the institutes of NAS of Ukraine, ready for commercialization and its integration into the corresponding European databases. The Database could include more than 3000 developments with their description and searching engines.
