To raise awareness within the NOVA community concerning the potentials and legal intricacies surrounding intellectual property (IP), the objective of this workshop is to convene those who are closely tied to the software, AI, and computer science domains, as well as others who develop software-based solutions. Special emphasis is placed on scientists, researchers, and both academic and non-academic staff, aiming to impart insights into the significance of IP in their endeavours and projects, while equipping them with fundamental knowledge on the subject.

Additionally, the event aims to clarify NOVA's academic community on its policies and internal procedures, providing valuable insights into best practices and practical tips. 

[/et_pb_accordion_item][et_pb_accordion_item title="What's it about?" _builder_version="4.24.0" _module_preset="default" global_colors_info="{}" open="off"]

Innovative, passionate, and creative individuals play a fundamental role in propelling progress towards a better and more sustainable future. The safeguarding of intellectual property (IP) becomes paramount in fostering the development of cutting-edge solutions in software and artificial intelligence (AI), with profound societal impacts. Just as in other industries, comprehending the implications and advantages of IP is central in this dynamic field. Intellectual capital thus emerges as a cornerstone in this landscape, underscoring the critical need to grasp the ramifications and benefits of IP. 

Within NOVA’s ecosystem, the recognition of impact creation in the software and AI industries is pivotal. To empower researchers and staff in this realm, our workshop delves into the intricacies of IP, offering valuable insights and addressing pertinent questions. Recent technological advancements have birthed innovative tools with diverse applications in software and AI, revolutionizing research paradigms. These advancements usher in novel methods for information exchange among users and developers, along with innovative technical solutions tailored for specific applications. 

Throughout the workshop, participants will gain an in-depth understanding of various intellectual property types and their relevance to the software and AI sectors. Practical insights into strategies aimed at safeguarding intellectual property and capitalizing on research outcomes will also be provided. 

Real-world case studies and open discussions will allow participants to delve into specific IP challenges faced by academic researchers in the software and AI industries. By the workshop's conclusion, attendees will depart with a heightened appreciation for intellectual property's significance in academic research, armed with practical strategies for safeguarding and commercializing their innovative endeavours. 

Participants are invited to bring their own use cases to be discussed.

In order to raise awareness amongst the NOVA community regarding the potentialities and legal procedures surrounding IP, the purpose of this workshop is to gather the entirety of NOVA community closely related to the health and biotech fields, with special emphasis on scientists, researchers, and other academic and non-academic staff, to learn about the importance of IP in their works and projects, as well as to provide them with some basic knowledge on the subject. It is also a purpose of this event to elucidate NOVA’s academic community on its policies and internal procedures, whilst providing some insights on best practices and other useful tips.

[/et_pb_accordion_item][et_pb_accordion_item title="What's it about?" _builder_version="4.21.0" _module_preset="default" global_colors_info="{}" open="off"]

The presence of inventive, enthusiastic, and imaginative individuals is instrumental in propelling the transition towards a better and more sustainable future, and the protection of intellectual property (IP) can facilitate the development of a better tomorrow.

NOVA’s ecosystem is no exception to this paradigm. With a strong linkage to impact creation, this event is held to help researchers and support staff to boost the impact of their research, to acknowledge some technicalities regarding IP and to answer to their own questions related to the subject.

To do this, the event is structured following a workshop approach, entailing introductory remarks on the importance of IP on research projects. It should also stimulate fruitful discussions regarding the actual challenges that scientists, researchers and other academic and non-academic staff face when managing their projects, IP portfolio and knowledge transfer strategies. This is a great opportunity to stimulate faculty in engaging with an expert on this field by having the possibility to have a short meeting with the speakers and a NOVA innovation manager.

Participants are invited to bring their own use cases to be discussed.
