On 28 January 2022, the Commission launched the stakeholder community of practice to co-create a code of practice for the smart use of Intellectual Property (IP), as part of the European Research Area Policy Agenda “Upgrade EU guidance for a better knowledge valorisation”.
The community comprises a wide range of R&I stakeholders with professional experience in intellectual assets management and who expressed their interest to contribute to this bottom-up initiative. Members will be encouraged to interact and exchange their experiences and examples on the smart use of IP.
The objective of the code of practice for the smart use of IP is to provide support to R&I stakeholders via recommendations and practical examples on how to handle challenges related to intellectual assets in the current R&I context such as results co-ownership, skills development, valuation, international projects etc.
The Commission will facilitate the online work of the group, which will feed into the code of practice. The community of practice will run for a period of approximately six months starting from 28 January 2022.
