IP protection



Please provide a short description of the state-of-the-art and/or current trends in the field? How does the result fit into it?

The production of the building blocks industry is very competitive but the market has been developed and in terms of technology very stable. The main advantage of this product is the geometrical shape and the building material being based on perlit.



What is the problem/need/knowledge gap that the research result is responding to?  How was it addressed before?

The usage of ECO BLOCK offers faster construction, with possibility for disassembly if required (and planned). Because of the material itself it offers much better insulation and space saving. The constructions using ECO Block are showing much better seismic characteristics than the conventional construction blocks.



What is the potential for further research?

The material composure can always be improved.

The shape of the blocks and the connective elements developed has been designed to be efficient, but it may always be additionally optimal.



What is the proposed method of IPR-protection? (patent, license, trademark etc.)

Patent (national protection)






What are the steps that need to be taken in order to secure the IPR-protection? What is the cost of IPR-protection?

The product is in procedure for patenting. The cost will be covered by the inventor.






What is you overall assessment of the scientific maturity of the research result?

The research result is sufficiently very mature. It has reached a phase in which there might be only a need for slight further research and improvements.
