IP and Education in Europe

European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights

One example is the study on the contribution to economic performance and employment of intellectual property rights intensive industries which was carried out jointly by OHIM, through the Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights, and the EPO. Another is the survey carried out on behalf of OHIM on the perception of European citizens with respect to intellectual property, which shows that a significant proportion of EU citizens are prepared to justify infringements of IP rights under certain circumstances. The gap between perceptions and the evidence about the importance of IP rights is particularly worrying when it comes to young people. One finding of the survey was that between 35% and 50% of young Europeans can display attitudes which favour counterfeiting or illegal downloading. Steps need to be taken to address this. Education would seem to be one of a number of ways of tackling the issue. It was for this reason that OHIM, through the Observatory, commissioned this mapping study on intellectual property education in school curricula in EU Member States to see how IP education is carried out and what could be done to improve it. IP education means the skills and competences that young people can be expected to acquire in the classroom that enable them to become familiar with intellectual property, understand its potential to generate income and economic growth and lead them to respect intellectual property rights, whether their own or those of others. The study suggests that the best approach to intellectual property education is to ensure that intellectual property skills and competences are, in the terms used by the study "transverse competences" or, more simply, competences that can be used across different subjects in a curriculum. It also gives examples of five learning areas selected from the eight key competencies chosen by the EU which define the main priorities for education in today´s modern economies and that provide opportunities to introduce IP in the curriculum. This approach, which seeks to embed IP skills and competences naturally into everyday education, looks attractive. Implementing it will not be easy. The study provides examples from the European Union and elsewhere from which suitable models can be adapted to fit in with the diverse nature of the educational systems in the 28 Member States. It notes interestingly that the most innovative non-EU countries/regions already teach IP at the primary level and place IP more commonly as a part of citizenship education (focusing on morals and ethics), whereas in the EU, IP is addressed in more specialised ICT related subjects and is being taught much later in the educational cycle. This raises the question of which educational path the EU should follow in the future – especially given the on-going discussion on the Digital Single Market, where one of the EC´s objectives is to boost digital skills and learning. The study also clearly indicates that copyright is by far most frequently mentioned in EU curricula, leaving other IP rights far behind. It shows that much more needs to be done to rebalance this. This study has been designed to assist educational policymakers in Member States to meet the challenge of the digital era. As a consequence of the findings, the Office is prepared to set up a specialised network of education experts and stakeholders to help them coordinate and develop appropriate, modern resources and programmes for pupils and teachers, based on the material acquired in the study. These would include for example videos, games, tutorials, e-learning portals and other online content, which could be disseminated through the schools with the aim of helping future generations understand the central role that IP plays in the economy and society....Vähem

The campaign, developed in cooperation with ELLESSE Edu, which for this school year involves secondary schools of the regions of Lombardy, Piedmont, Abruzzo, Lazio, Marche and Sicily, allows interested public institutes to benefit from a free educational kit containing a number of materials and tools developed for them, including a guide for teachers, a poster, a multimedia DVD and questionnaires for the pupils. The initiative includes the participation of DGBIC ‐ Directorate General of Libraries and Cultural Institutes (Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism), the support of DGSIP – Directorate General for Students, Integration and Participation (Education Ministry), and is also sponsored by AGCOM ‐ Communications Authority ‐ which has supported and shared the principles of the initiative that complies with the educational objectives set out in the Regulations on the "protection of copyright on electronic communication networks".

Intellectual Property Teaching Kit. IP Basis

EPO OHIM

Intellectual property reaches into everyone's daily lives. A basic awareness and understanding of IP is therefore essential for today's university students, who are the engineers, researchers, lawyers ...Veel Intellectual property reaches into everyone's daily lives. A basic awareness and understanding of IP is therefore essential for today's university students, who are the engineers, researchers, lawyers, politicians, and managers of tomorrow. It is vital that students become acquainted with elementary aspects of IP, so that they can benefit from it fully in whatever career they eventually pursue. Students and universities should be aware too of how they can utilise the incomparable wealth of technical and commercial information to be found in IP documentation, and understand the need for universities to convert their research into IP rights, manage their IP portfolios and engage in technology transfer to industrial partners for value creation and the benefit of society as a whole. Last but not least, students and universities should be aware of the consequences of failing to protect IP assets correctly, including the risk of reverse engineering, blatant copying and even industrial espionage. This is where the IP Teaching Kit comes in. Produced by the European Patent Academy in association with the EU's Office for the Harmonization of the Internal Introduction Market, the IPTK is a collection of materials – including PowerPoint slides, speaking notes and background information – which can be used to put together lectures and presentations on all kinds of IP, including patents, utility models, trade marks, copyright, designs and trade secrets. The materials can be tailored to the background of the students (science or engineering, business or law), their knowledge of the topic, the time available and their learning objectives. The first part of the kit – IP Basics – is a follow-up to the successful Patent Teaching Kit launched in 2010 by the European Patent Academy (and with over 6 000 copies in circulation). It contains the tools and information you need to deliver a lecture on the role of IP lasting between one and two hours. With the IP Teaching Kit you have at your disposal an extensive set of freely accessible, professional teaching materials which represents one of the most comprehensive IP teaching resources in the world....Vähem
