On 19 May 2018 we are meeting researchers at the University of Bolzano to talk about how intellectual property rights can be employed to maximise the value of research results.
Valentina Predazzi – who spent over 10 years as a researcher in the field of human and molecular genetics at the La Sapienza University of Rome and other universities as well as at the National Institue of Health in the United States – will open the event by introducing basic concepts about patents.
She will the proceed to focus on how to reconcile the publication of scientific research results with patenting. Valentina will then speak about the specificity of biotech and software inventions.
Mauro Delluniversità will complete the picture of intellectual property rights by illustrating the possibilities offered by trademarks and designs for product protection, and will then delve into a topic of great interest for attendees: the regulations concerning the ownership of inventions made by university researchers.
