EU Knowledge Valorisation Week

By Medisa Focic

EU Knowledge Valorisation Week ran from April 25 to April 28. It is the European forum to exchange experiences and discover novel approaches to creating value from scientific findings and inventions. The three themed days focused on valorisation for sustainability, intellectual property management and collaboration between industry and academia.

Project partners, Institut Mines-Télécom Business School were represented by Medisa Focic who enjoyed being part of the event and exploring the possibilities of the new Guiding Principles for Knowledge Valorisation.  These guiding principles aim to turn research and innovation results into solutions more efficiently and understand the benefits of the brand-new European Codes of Practice on intellectual assets management and standards.

In the ‘Valorisation Talks’, practitioners explained how the brand-new Codes of Practice on intellectual assets management and on standardisation will help R&I actors. The various webinars showcased excellent and concrete examples of how to put these guidance documents into practice for the public good and individual goals.

For the second year running REVALORISE+ submitted ’𝘉𝘦𝘴𝘵 𝘗𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘦𝘴 𝘪𝘯 𝘒𝘯𝘰𝘸𝘭𝘦𝘥𝘨𝘦 𝘝𝘢𝘭𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯’ through the EU Knowledge Valorisation Platform, which was shared with its members during the week.

REVALORISE+ joined universities, companies, business associations, research organisations, arts institutions and other valorisation actors attending online to gain insights and share best practices on valorisation.

Speaking afterwards Medisa said, “I was delighted to join a forum for sharing experiences, discovering new approaches and mutual learning from research.”
