For whom?

In order to raise awareness amongst the NOVA community regarding the potentialities of IP and IP rights, ImPact @ NOVA arises. Its purpose is to gather scientists, researchers and other academic and non-academic staff together to learn about the importance of IP in their works and projects, as well as to provide them with some basic knowledge on some technicalities regarding the protection of their inventions. 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.

What's it about?

There has been an increasing awareness on the role that intellectual property (IP) rights play in encouraging innovation and creativity. Inventors, creators, and entrepreneurs are stepping up to innovation challenges, using their energy and ingenuity, curiosity and creativity to steer a course towards a better future. Innovative, energetic and creative minds are helping to drive the changes we need to move to a more sustainable future. IP rights can support the creation of a better future.

NOVA’s ecosystem is no exception to this paradigm. That is why NOVA’s entrepreneurial and creative spirit ought to be celebrated whilst building the foundations of a culture that fosters and inspires other to pursue their aspirations, ingenuity, creativity, vision and courage.

To do this, the event is structured following a parallel technical workshop (WS) approach, according to the participants’ field of knowledge and preference. Each workshop ought to entail 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 experts on this field, namely patent attorneys.

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


When will it happen?

June 7th, 2022 @ NOVA Rectorate (Campolide Campus), from 14h00 to 18h00.
