KnowING IPR Fostering Innovation in the Danube Region through Knowledge Engineering and IPR Management

KnowING IPR will improve framework conditions for innovation in the Danube region by developing a transnational KnowING IPR platform, which will provide:

  • an open access tool for advanced intellectual property rights (IPR) analysis,
  • guidelines for improved and harmonized IPR policy framework across the Danube region.

It will ensure broader and needs-based access to existing innovation and research results, to patents and to IPR knowledge and will encompass services and training for the management of IPR and for support to commercialization of research results and technology transfer.

KnowING IPR is a pioneering effort bringing advanced knowledge engineering technology to the field of IPR. This will enable pooling and exploitation of existing innovation knowledge and increased IPR-based cooperation opportunities (out-licensing, in-licensing and also underdeveloped university technology transfer).

The project will tackle the bottleneck of the lack of real-value IPR data and of IPR management knowledge, thereby stimulating an underdeveloped IPR market, encouraging further innovation investments and creating competitive advantages, especially for Danube region SMEs and HEI&RI.

The main result of the KnowING IPR will be a practical solution in the form of an open access Knowing Hub online platform providing:

  • knowledge extraction from patent and other databases,
  • advanced analytics,
  • training for IPR extraction and management,

thus enabling:

  • IPR collaboration,
  • better informed freedom-to-operate,
  • future trend decisions,
  • build-on innovation processes.

Furthermore, the project will yield evidence-based Policy Recommendations for the Danube region in the field of IPR.

KnowING IPR will build upon triple helix model of innovation, reaching to enterprises, especially SMEs, business support organisations, public authorities, higher education and research centers, through its varied consortium members and outreach activities.
