AN ELECTRONIC PATENT EXCHANGE CREATED IN THE ARKHANGELSK REGION ON THE FEDERAL UNIVERSITY BASE
Valuable information about the objects of intellectual property of the NARFU until recently had a paper format. The other day its digitization was completed.
The purpose of creating a patent exchange is to organize space for a dialogue between business and the scientific community. This task is not an easy one and it is necessary to create many such sites for its solution.
The ideology behind the creation of the electronic exchange was based on an understanding of the need of researchers to promote their developments, and the manifestation of the needs of entrepreneurs interested in the introduction of innovations in their technological processes. In this case, often science and business can not find common ground. The patent exchange is designed to provide such interrelations and to minimize the search for interest.
The database of intellectual property objects, namely patents and certificates, is formed and continuously updated by the Center for Patenting and Protection of Intellectual Property. The authors are employees of the NARFU named after M.V. Lomonosov was often asked about the practical applicability of their intellectual activity results. For example, in the period from 2011 to 2017 more than 300 security documents (patents and certificates) were received. But the application of these inventions was not noticed in practice (production). In part, this is due to the fact that 88% of research (research work) is carried out at the expense of the state budget. It is necessary that R & D be financed by business, as business can better assess the prospect of further application of the patent, evidence (development).
"The exchange was launched in January and, of course, it is too early to expect responses," the NARFU comments. - Active work is needed to promote this site at the regional, federal and international levels. This work is aimed at the future. In addition, the university is not going to stop at the exchange as an instrument for creating a full-fledged dialogue between business and the scientific community. There are other projects that will be implemented in parallel. "
The main effect of such a dialogue should be the reduction of costs in production in the Arkhangelsk region, increase of jobs and incomes in budgets of various levels due to the creation of new technological enterprises.
"The patent exchange is a good tool to help and strengthen the ideas that arise to create primarily new business units and the development of existing ones. This is a good opportunity for those who need science to create and develop business, because the site provides an opportunity to formulate their request for the development of a patent, "commented the general director of ARDC Aleksey Kovalev.
