Technopolis supports research organisations in their development, assessment and formulation of IPR strategies. This study – written on behalf of the European Commission, DG EAC, and in collaboration with ISIS Enterprise, the technology transfer firm of the University of Oxford – reviewed the current state of development of the IPR strategies of the first three KICs (Knowledge and Innovation Communities) of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). The KICs were InnoEnergy, Climate-KIC and KIC ICT Labs. The Executive Summary of the study report is in the public domain. This summary presents the key features of the IPR strategies pursued. It outlines also implications and recommendations for the formulation of IPR strategies by future KICs as well as for supporting the KICs in this process by the EIT headquarters.
