European IP Helpdesk at the Tour des Capitales: Skills and Capacity for Knowledge Valorisation

Tour des capitales

On 4 June 2024, the Ministry of Science, Education, and Youth hosted the inaugural National Knowledge Valorisation Day. This event was part of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation's "Tour des Capitales" campaign, which aims to emphasize the importance of knowledge valorisation in making research results beneficial to society.

The purpose of the knowledge valorisation event is to introduce attendees to the latest developments in knowledge valorisation policies and their practical implementation.

In a dedicated session titled “Skills and Capacity for Knowledge Valorisation” moderated by Smiljka Vikić-Topić (Senior IP & Innovation Advisor, European IP Helpdesk) we explored the intersection of knowledge valorisation and intellectual asset management. Additionally, we introduced a novel approach to knowledge valorisation, emphasising the need for equilibrium between economic and societal value pathways, as articulated in the Code of Practice on the management of intellectual assets for knowledge valorisation. 

Florentina Golisteanu (Legal and Policy Officer, Knowledge Valorisation and IPR Policies, DG Research and Innovation) provided valuable insights into the latest EU policies regarding knowledge valorisation, including the Guiding principles for knowledge valorisation and implementing Codes of Practice with the focus on the Code of Practice on the management of intellectual assets for knowledge valorisation. 

In line with these new policies that call for the best possible use of the research results and all generated intellectual assets, Johan Moyersoen (General Manager, Impact Licensing Initiative) further elaborated on these policies, emphasising the significance of maximising the utilisation of research outcomes and intellectual assets. Michele Dubbini (IP and Innovation Advisor, European IP Helpdesk) then introduced the support and services provided by the European IP Helpdesk, emphasising their tailored assistance for various needs, including participation in informative webinars and direct inquiries.
