The first step to implement and exploit the results of the research is that to identify the technology and protect it as an invention that can be filed as a patent. This is the starting point of the process of valorization or better say the technology transfer process which is nowdays included as the third mission of Universities along with education and research. This awareness has generated a growing interesting among the academic community in Sapienza, in achieving 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.
