Over the last few years, generation, protection, and exploitation of Intellectual Property (IP) rights have acquired a crucial role for both the Industry and the Academia. Intellectual property not only represents a measure of the innovation potential for companies and universities, but also plays a key role in the commercialisation of research results and in its Technology Transfer mission. Through licensing intellectual property (IP), companies and universities can create a self-sustaining cycle where profits from the licensing activities are used to fund the R&D activities, thus fostering the whole innovation process. The first part of the session will focus on the basic principles of patent rights, including strategies for patent exploitation, and will touch on the licensing framework of standard essential patents. After investigating the evolution of patenting activities over time in the worldwide (and Italian) Academia, notable case studies of research monetization through patent valorisation will be provided.
