Meta Group’s IP Booster programme finally comes to a close, after having delivered 442 services to 147 research organisations from 27 countries over the past 3 years.
The expert advice given by Meta Group, INSME Member, to the participants will help to ensure better technology transfer and gives research organisations an applied understanding of intellectual property issues so that they can transform research results into real-world impact. Researchers across Europe have benefited from the professional IP services delivered by META Group and Deloitte, delivered free-of-charge to beneficiaries of the EU funding initiative.
Here is a practical example of the added value of the Programme. We share with you a quote from Prof. Antonio Scilimati of University of Bari “Aldo Moro”, Italy, who has been working on a kit for diagnosing ovarian cancer using molecular methods “The Italian patent has been transformed, as suggested by you, into PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty) and the market evaluation provides us the strength to negotiate the technology transfer to the appropriate industrial companies that can transform the patent claims in a marketable product to sell: the kit for molecular diagnosis of ovarian cancer.”
