Capacity building on Intellectual Property (IP) management to support open science


Programme: Horizon Europe Framework Programme (HORIZON)
Call: Enhancing the European R&I system (HORIZON-WIDERA-2024-ERA-01)

Topic description

Projects are expected to contribute to the following expected outcomes:

  • Analysis of how adequate IP management enables and boosts open science and how both open science and IP management are complementary in achieving a better dissemination and valorisation of knowledge;
  • Specific training materials, modules or courses on Intellectual Property assets and open science, including how to manage IP assets to enable open access to scientific publications and to ensure scientific results are Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (“FAIR principles”); the open licenses applied to the outputs deriving from this call will allow for their reusability by the wider R&I community; resulting training materials, modules or courses are expected to reuse or build on existing materials, updating them when necessary;
  • High-quality training on the diverse aspects of IP management and how an adequate IP management enables open science delivered to research performing organisations’ professional and managerial staff and/or academic staff (“train the trainers”);
  • Support the trainers in acting as multipliers of the acquired knowledge, in particular, by embedding the training materials, modules and courses resulting from the projects into the curricula/learning or research support material of research performing organisations;
  • Gather experiences and share good practices for the further development of programmes and specialised courses on the topic; the project is expected to deposit the resulting good practices in the Knowledge Valorisation Platform[1] repository of best practices under IP management;
  • Awareness-raising campaign on how an adequate management of IP enables and fosters open science; such a campaign is expected to be built on the previous awareness raising campaigns on IP management organised by the European Commission (Directorate General for Research and Innovation), with the European Patent Office (EPO), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and the European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA).

These targeted outcomes in turn contribute to medium and long-term impacts:

  • Support to research performing organisations and researchers in practising open science by providing them with relevant training materials, sharing best practices and raising awareness on the importance of adequate IP management;
  • Increased understanding among the research community of IP assets and the role their adequate management plays in enabling open science;
  • Better management of IP in line with the Code of practice for the smart use of IP to be developed in 2022, including better IP management to facilitate open science;
  • Improved overall capacities within the EU R&I system to conduct open science and implement it as a modus operandi of modern science for researchers and research organisations (e.g., by integrating the expected outcomes into their open science and IP policies).
