Patent Portfolio

The first step to implement and fully benefit from the research results is to identify the technology and protect it by patenting the invention. This is the starting point of the valorization process through a technology transfer process which is part of the university third mission along with education and research. This awareness has generated a growing interest among the academic community in Sapienza in warranting the protection of intellectual property, as well as the development of a competitive national and international “patent culture” accessible both to students and starting researchers.
