The identification and evaluation of inventions and the consequent decision to protect research results by depositing a patent request is the first step in the full exploitation of technology. The patent does not represent an end in itself, ma the starting point to drive technology transfer as defined in the third mission principles of Italian universities. This awareness has generated a growing interesting by Sapienza’s academic community for the protection of intellectual property, as well as the development of a competitive national and international “patent culture” accessible both to students and young researchers.
