The Rules for Participant establish best efforts commitment of participants to exploit their own results. IP and exploitation issues are subject to evaluation regarding impact and feasibility of the proposal.

Properly managing IP in the projects, helps participants to avoid future conflicts among the consortium.Horizon 2020: IP downstream routeUnderstanding the scene (Terms, Rules, Model Agreements, etc)Setting the scene (Which IP provisions are negotiable?)Getting to know the individual interests, motivations and expectations of individual partners regarding IP management and exploitationStrategies and Plans to capture, manage and exploit results of H2020 projects on consortium levelDeveloping the right innovation management structuresDefinition of appropriate activities and tasks to implement innovation-related activitiesExploitation pathways, route to market, business models Routes for exploitation in H 2020Use for further researchDeveloping and selling own products/servicesSpin-Off activitiesCooperation agreement/Joint VenturesSelling IP rights/Selling the (IP based) businessLicensing IP rights (out-licensing)Standardisation activities (new standards/on-going procedures) 8ServicesBulletin NewsletterTrainingHelplinePublications WebsiteAwareness RaisingAll of our services are offered free of charge.European IPR Helpdesk Website & PublicationsNewsEventsModel AgreementsFact SheetsCase StudiesBulletinGlossaryFAQsSample Publications Guide to IP in Horizon 2020 12HelplineFirst-line supportUser-friendly service provided in EnglishPersonalised answers to individual questions within three working daysWide range of IP topics: IP protection, IP management and exploitation, revision of agreements,etc.Understandable for non-legal experts and business orientedTrainingCapacity buildingPractical and comprehensive training approachIndividual organisation of on-location training events in cooperation with multipliers/ intermediariesTraining CatalogueWeb-based training sessions3,000 participants in training activities in 2014 !!!TrainingNew training modules focusing on the management of results/IP generated in Horizon 2020 collaborative projects addressing particularly academia-industry collaboration IP & Innovation Management in proposal preparation phase (Impact and innovation in H2020 a guide for proposers)IP Management framework A credible strategy to market Operational methodologies/processes in the project implementationPractical Management of IPR, Impact and Exploitation during the project (Maximising impact Exploitation of H2020 results)Capturing and assessing the IP Finding business opportunities/strategies Realising exploitation routesDelivered in on-site workshops + Webinars (Further information to be found on EU IPR Helpdesk website)15Other IPR HelpdesksThe China IPR SME Helpdesk supports European Union (EU) small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to both protect and enforce their Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in or relating to China, through the provision of free information and services. www.china-iprhelpdesk.euThe MERCOSUR IPR SME Helpdesk offers free of charge, first-line support on IP and IPR matters that aims to facilitate the expansion of European SMEs already established at, or working with entities in Mercosur and Chile as well as those potentially interested in establishing commercial and R&D activities and ventures in these countries.www.mercosur-iprhelpdesk.euTheASEAN IPR SME Helpdesksupports European Union (EU) small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to manage, protect and enforce their Intellectual Property (IP) rights in or relating toASEAN, through the provision of free, first-line advice, information and training.www.asean-iprhelpdesk.eu16CooperationCooperating with stakeholders involved in IPR and promotion of innovation in order to foster synergies (EEN, WIPO, EPO, OHIM, National Patent Offices...)Liaising with European business associations and other stakeholders with the purpose to foster partnerships and reach more SMEsNetworking through LinkedIn and Twitter17EU IPR Helpdesk Ambassador SchemeIntensified cooperation with the Enterprise Europe NetworkAppoint Network members as local ambassadors of the EU IPR Helpdesk to thus foster a network of contact points across EuropeAiming to increase the outreach of theEU IPR Helpdesk towards European SMEs at regional and local level in particularJrg SchererTel.: +49 681/95 92 33 60Fax: +49 681/95 92 33 70j.scherer@eurice.euEurice GmbHScience Park 166123 SaarbrckenGermanywww.eurice.euMany thanks for your attention !!Contact Information:
