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?

At the national level have been developed support systems analysis skills,  but there are no applications under the proposed model and equipped with tools for online counseling.
The result of our project is aligned with these prospects of development of national service.

What is the problem/need/knowledge gap that the research result is responding to?  How was it addressed before?
Before the implementation of procedures prototype analytical skills were handled manually. The Province of Chieti and then felt the need to create a computer application to allow web users the procedure to register, submit applications, fill out forms and make the analysis of the skills possessed, with the support of CPI Consulting. The system also allows us to perform detailed statistical data and draw on qualitative and quantitative indicators of the effectiveness and efficiency of services provided by ICC.

What is the potential for further research?

From the scientific point of view further research would be able to investigate the mechanisms of interaction between students, professionals and businesses and improve existing facilities.

4

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

For the particular type of product R & D, consisting of a product (information system) is assumed the provision of a procedure for obtaining a patent and a license agreement.

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

In Italy, a patent application may be filed with the various Chambers of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture or at the Italian Patent and Trademark Office – UIBM – in Rome, or electronically.
From 1 July 2008, with Ministerial Decree of June 27, 2008, applications for patent for industrial invention without priorities are subject to scrutiny.
Once filed, a patent application is first examined to see if it affects national defense, is then examined to see if it is formally correct.
It has the ability to send UIBM claims translated into English, or paying the search fee. Submission of translated claims or payment of search fee may be made not later than two months from the filing date, subject to rejection of the application.
Upon receipt of the patent application UIBM assigns the class and a pre-filtering to eliminate the questions are clearly not protectable.
If the patent application is not of interest to national defense and if it is formally correct, is sent IN the Office of European Patent Office (EPO) that performs a prior art search and submit UIBM, within nine months from the filing date, a report and a preliminary opinion.
In urgent cases you can take to IPTO, which reserves an accelerated procedure.
EPO carries out research on the basis of the claims translated with the support of the description translated by software, if not already provided to the filing. In case of doubt on the research you can request a copy of the translation performed by software.
EPO cannot rely on the unity of invention and scan only a portion of the patent.
From 1 July 2008 also introduced a fee for each subsequent claim to the 10th.
Receiving the search report and the preliminary opinion, there are 9 months to make any comments or voluntary changes to the text. At the age of 18 months from the date of filing the documentation is made available to the public and the application is examined by the examiners Italian, which must be based on the research report and may use the prior opinion issued by EPO only as reference.
A patent subject to the new Italian procedure, which is extended at a European or PCT, may be entitled to a portion of reimbursement of the search fee, if the claims are identical to those of the first Italian storage.
In case of application for early release, if the research is still ongoing, the patent is granted without research, and in the public file, it is noted that has not been searched.
There are also countries that stipulate that third parties can oppose the granting final, by submitting a reasoned request within a defined period from the date of grant by the Patent Office of the State.
