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?
There are similar systems, but this one does not require professional personnel, because it is a system conceived for non-scientifically informed users. The system is modular and this enables it to be adapted to customer requirements, both for the number of sensors and of remote stations connected







What is the problem/need/knowledge gap that the research result is responding to?  How was it addressed before?
Beside the ease of use, the software is produced by this research group; further to that, the sensor is realized specifically for this system and responds to the requirement of the same, since it is capable of evaluating both water quality and pollution level, and also the type of pollution detected







What is the potential for further research?
Possibility of inserting other types of sensors to evaluate other types of pollution and/or polluting materials, and this is possible because of the modularity of the system itself







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







What are the steps that need to be taken in order to secure the IPR-protection? What is the cost of IPR-protection?
Patentability can be requested for the sensor realised by the research group, as well as for the modularity of the system


Request for protection as copyright for the software


Request for protection as trademark




What is your overall assessment of the scientific maturity of the research result?
The project is ready to be protected
