KnowING IPR will improve framework conditions for innovation in the Danube region by developing a transnational KnowING IPR platform, which will provide:

  • an open access tool for advanced intellectual property rights (IPR) analysis,
  • set of services halping SMEs and HEIs to develop and manage their intelecutal property,
  • guidelines and action plan for improved and harmonized IPR policy framework across the Danube region.

It will ensure broader and needs-based access to existing innovation and research results, to patents and to IPR knowledge and will encompass services and training for the management of IPR and for support to commercialization of research results and technology transfer.

KnowING IPR is a pioneering effort bringing advanced knowledge engineering technology to the field of IPR. This will enable pooling and exploitation of existing innovation knowledge and increased IPR-based cooperation opportunities (out-licensing, in-licensing and also underdeveloped university technology transfer).

KnowING IPR will build upon triple helix model of innovation, reaching to enterprises, especially SMEs, business support organisations, public authorities, higher education and research centers, through its varied consortium members and outreach activities.
