Grigory Ivliev, President of the Eurasian Patent Office (EAPO), took part in the plenary session of the X Congress “Innovation Practice: Science and Business” and spoke at the round table discussion “Aggregate Sovereignty 2.0: international technology transfer as a mechanism for implementing the concept of technological development in Russia”. Innopraktika, together with Lomonosov Moscow State University, has been organizing the Congress annually since 2014.
The EAPO President stated that international technology exchange is necessary for the development of innovative companies, and the Eurasian region is often the first logical export destination.
“Nowadays, companies should provide special attention to the protection of IP rights related to technology, designs, and brands when working on joint projects in any field. These elements are key assets in the modern economy. A patent plays an important role in technology transfer. When it comes to Eurasian economic integration and the formation of a common innovation base, Eurasian patents protecting the best innovative developments of the countries in the Eurasian region are one of the leading factors,” said Grigory Ivliev.
Representatives of Russian business, the National Association for Technology Transfer, and the International Centre for Innovations in Science, Technology and Education also took part in the roundtable discussion. The participants discussed the implementation of digital platforms and the development of technobrokers, who will be able to provide the necessary support to domestic companies at all stages of technology transfer.
