1 Intellectual property as instrument for facilitation of collaborative research Workshop on the key role of patents in the transfer of knowledge in the knowledge-based economy Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia Intellectual Property Office of the Republic of Serbia Belgrade, 30 October 2012 Dr. Alexandros Papaderos

2 “ has become so sophisticated, broad and expensive that even the largest companies cannot afford to do it all themselves.” R. Z. Gussin Corporate Vice President Science and Technology Johnson & Johnson Industry-academia collaboration Dr. Alexandros Papaderos30/10/2012

3 § 2 University Mission (excerpt)  “… act together with economic and professional practice and promote knowledge and technology transfer. “ § 6 Research mission (excerpt)  “…Subject of research in the universities may be, taking into account the mission of the university, all scientific fields and the application of scientific knowledge in the economy ….. “ § 8 Research with third parties (excerpt)  “The university members, …………….., are entitled to as part of their official duties to carry out research projects including those…..funded by third parties. The implementation of such projects is part of university research.” Knowledge and Technology Transfer (KTT) and academia Excerpts from the Bavarian Higher Education Law Dr. Alexandros Papaderos30/10/2012

4 Knowledge and Technology Transfer (KTT) is made… KTT through people Examples:  conference attendance and/or presentations  doctoral and postdoctoral theses in industry  consultancy services Benefits  latest trends  contacts  exchange of experiences KTT through collaboration Examples:  contract research  co-operations  strategic alliances Benefits  access to external expertise and equipment  creation of centres of scientific excellence  establishment of long- termed relationships KTT through IPR Examples:  commercialization  start-up or spin-of companies Benefits  financial income  reputation  proof of competence Dr. Alexandros Papaderos30/10/2012

5  Patents  Industrial designs  Trademarks  Utility models  Copyright  Trade secrets  New plant varieties  Computer programs (including, without limitation, microcode, subroutines, and operating systems)  Unpatented materials (including biological materials like cell lines, organisms, plasmids, transgenic animals, materials useful for research or for commercial purposes, for which patent applications are not filed) Dr. Alexandros Papaderos30/10/2012 Standard types of IPR

6 Types of collaboration with regard to IPR  Research & Development (contract research)  third-party funded cooperation  self-funded cooperation  services contract (e.g. scientific measurements)  consultancy services Dr. Alexandros Papaderos30/10/2012

7 Distinction between creator and owner: creator is always an individual! BUT: IPR can be created under various legal circumstances:  University funded research (“ground financing”)  publicly funded research (regional, national, international)  Industry-funded contract research  Co-founded industry-university collaboration Inventors can be (beside employees of the University) :  Undergraduate/Diploma Students  Doctoral Thesis Students  Visiting scientists Dr. Alexandros Papaderos Creation of IPR 30/10/2012

8 Needs of industry within the scope of collaboration with academia  reasonable costs and efforts for the conclusion of collaboration agreements  compliance with the acknowledged rules of technology and science  professional and proper execution of the work  confidential handling of information/data  freedom to operate (results are free from rights of third parties)  exclusivity for the use of the results (and eventually of the background IP) Dr. Alexandros Papaderos30/10/2012

9 Needs of academia within the scope of collaboration with industry  full cover of costs of research work  financial security to allow recruitment of staff  exact definition and legal commitment of the research work  handling of publications  warranties, liability, insurance, governing law  no hidden “nasties”: clear wording  fair and reasonable remuneration for IPR  ownership and/or use of IPR Dr. Alexandros Papaderos30/10/2012

10 Who should own the IPR? Academia Industry  university should act as applicant  commercialization of research results is desirable  focus of Universities should be on research and education  IPR should be handled like the other results  inventions are an „add on“ to the results and therefore not satisfied by the project remuneration  transfer of ALL IPR is satisfied by the project remuneration Dr. Alexandros Papaderos30/10/2012

11 Crucial point of negotiations: Intellectual Property BACKGROUND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY  the Background IP remains the respective property of the Project Partner from which it originates  the academic partner ensures that the industrial partner is granted a non-exclusive, royalty-free licence, to have access to and to use the Background IP owned by or licensed to the academic partner solely for the performance and the duration of the Research Project  the academic partner ensures that the industrial partner is granted, under mutually agreed reasonable conditions, a non-exclusive and transferable licence to have access to and to use the Background IP owned by or licensed to the academic partner, which is necessary for the exploitation of the Results of such Research Project Dr. Alexandros Papaderos30/10/2012

22 Project objective Use science and research innovations for the development of the e-car of the future Customer-oriented mobility in urban environments Dr. Alexandros Papaderos30/10/2012

23 MUTE MUTE was the first step at the Technical University of Munich for the development of a reasonable priced e-car. The vehicle unites innovations from numerous research areas of Technical University of Munich. Focus areas: Vehicle concept Torque-Vectoring-Transmission Energy storage Infotainment Tele-operarted driving Dr. Alexandros Papaderos30/10/2012
