The result of collaboration between a research team at the Politecnico di Milano and e-Novia, a deep-tech company creator, Blubrake was formed to commercialise an innovative e-bike ABS. In a market dominated by large and established international companies, patents were used to improve market penetration strategy and recognition. Initial patent applications for customised technology features and design were aimed at protecting the company's own unique selling proposition in the e-bike market
Cycling safely into the future:
- Given the right conditions, for example proper training, talented researchers and inventors can also become good managers.
- It is important for companies undergoing technology redesign and market customisation to align technology and patents. Protecting patents should be part of a continuous strategy, rather than a one-off exercise.
- A well-defined collaboration framework agreement facilitates IP generation, reduces transaction costs and creates incentives for all partners.
- IP protection is a key element of a variety of business models, including open-ended solutions, and allows you to keep control of your technology while collaborating with others.
