On 7th December Noemí Daviu held an online session on ‘What is intellectual property and how to protect it’ within the framework of the international Erasmus Mundus Master Emotion which hosts students from all over the world.

During the session the students could learn different aspects about IP and in particular patents, such as what can be patented in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic field, the main patentability requirements, the structure of a patent, and typical filing strategies to obtain effective patent protection, all illustrated with practical examples.

The mission of the Emotion Master, which is funded by the European Union, is to educate the future generation of translational scientists and professionals in dermocosmesis and dermatologic therapies, to equip them with the skills and competences to work in R&D, and stimulate them towards entrepreneurship, and thereby develop their own businesses.
