Project Summary

In most developing economies the patent practice is often performed by Independent Inventors (I.I.) rather than enterprises or academic/research institutions. Also, in most advanced economies, I.I. are still a very important source of invention and innovation seeking to take advantage from IP rights. Despite of its relevance, I.I. face a number of challenges in their efforts to bring their patented products to the market. This project proposes to conduct a research on the enabling environment, current situation, importance and supportive programs, as well as on challenges, best practices and lessons learned regarding the utilization and exploitation of patents by I.I.; and to prepare a toolkit (consisting of an Inventor´s Handbook and a Final Report for Policy Recommendations) to facilitate and promote patent management and technology commercialization in APEC region. The project contributes to the Osaka Agenda and the APEC Accord on Innovative Development, Economic Reform and Growth; also addresses Minister’s mandates on IP management and commercialization.

Relevance

Independent inventors play a key role in almost every APEC economy. They can represent as much as 60%[1] of resident patent applications (e.g. Peru or Chile), being the first driving power for intellectual property utilization in developing economies. In most advanced economies, even though companies account for a vast majority of patent applications, independent inventors are still a very important force and source of invention and innovation seeking to take advantage from patent rights (e.g. 23% in Republic of  Korea, meaning more than 38,000 patent applications per year[2]). In the road of bringing ideas to the market, independent inventors do establish invention-based enterprises (through MSMEs), providing jobs & income to thousands of people, paying taxes, and creating welfare. Whether independent inventors do not run their own businesses, they may also constitute an important resource for linkages with existing MSMEs through intellectual property negotiation schemes, such as licensing or strategic alliances. Despite of its relevance, independent inventors face a number of challenges in their efforts to bring their patented products to the market (in comparison to MSMEs). The reason for this is that most independent inventors lack of an already established manufacturing infrastructure, commercial/distribution channels, among others. In addition, independent inventors often lack of specialized supportive policies, funds or tools from public (and private) institutions which more often target innovative MSMEs. Nevertheless, there are successful stories among independent inventors in the APEC region, usually driven by self-motivation, effort, determination and inventors’ own resources and skills, as well as on a strategic vision on how to access, manage and take advantage of intellectual property available instruments. Therefore, this project seeks to provide a toolkit consisting of an Inventor’s Handbook and a Final Report for Policy Recommendations to be delivered to independent inventors and to APEC IP and innovation officials, respectively, addressing patent management & technology commercialization. The development of the toolkit will be based on APEC independent inventors´ successful stories and on their current enabling environment, offering helpful information to apply or to take into consideration so as to strengthen their efforts to bring patented products to the market. Thus, this project will build capacity for APEC economies by providing them with a toolkit that will include a set of possible policy recommendations to design, propose and improve national strategies aim at fostering independent inventors´ enabling environment, knowledge and management skills around the use and commercial exploitation of patents. Policy recommendations will be built upon specific measures, actions, policies and treatment implemented and shared by APEC economies to support independent inventors’ field, as well as lessons learned from independent inventors’ experiences in dealing with technological commercialization and/or transfer based on patents. 

The project falls under Rank 1 in “Supporting the multilateral trading system and the implementation of Bogor Goals”. Regarding the multilateral trading system, the project is aligned with TRIPS, since it addresses the challenges for IP owners by promoting technological innovation and transfer of technology, to the mutual advantage of producers and users of technological knowledge and in a manner conductive to social and economic welfare. In the case of Bogor Goals, the project is aligned with the Osaka Agenda since it addresses the challenges for IPRs arising from the rapid growth and developments of the New Economy, by providing incentives for innovation without sacrificing the community’s interest in reasonable access to information. It also belongs to Rank 1 “Strengthening innovation capacities and competitiveness of MSMEs”, since there are two ways in which an independent inventor will be able to commercialize a patented invention: through new owned-established companies; or through business linkages with existing MSMEs by means of licensing or strategic alliances. In the first case, it is expected that if they run a MSME, this company will have better foundations to succeed based on the toolkit developed to nurture independent inventor’s managerial capacities. In the second case, existing MSMEs will improve their productivity and competitiveness by focusing on open innovation schemes (innovation outside their businesses frontiers) selecting patented products which they believe will attain market success (avoiding the risk and time of self-made R&D).

Objectives

The main objectives of this project are as follows: 

1) To build, improve and strengthen APEC independent inventors´ capacities to manage and transfer or commercialize patented technologies based on lessons learned from APEC independent inventors´ successful experiences related to patent market exploitation.

2) To provide APEC economies with a set of policy recommendations that can be taken into action to enhance independent inventors’ enabling environment and conditions so as to increase their contribution to economic and business development in the APEC region. 

3) To foster regional collaboration and create value within APEC independent inventors’ sector, exchanging and transferring information, knowledge and experiences not only from the advanced-to-developing economies way, but also from the developing-to-developing economies way.

Alignment

In 2016 Ministers Responsible for Trade (MRT) agreed “to foster cooperation in the area of intellectual property (IP) rights protection and enforcement, and raise SMEs awareness of IP commercialization”. Furthermore, in the same year, APEC Ministers (AMM) “recognize(d) the importance of further work to promote cooperation, protection and enforcement of IPRs, in accordance with TRIPS and enhance MSMEs' capacity on IP management and commercialization for their continuous development, growth and innovation”. This project will contribute directly with both mandates as it will promote the exchange of information regarding management of IPRs, as well as to strengthen business linkages, innovation capacities and competitiveness among independent inventors and SMEs.

This project is aligned with IPEG’s work program, which aims at:

·  Deepen the dialogue on IP policy.

·  Survey and exchange information on the current status of IPR protection and administrative systems.

·  Study measures for the effective enforcement of IPR.

·  Fully implement TRIPS Agreement.

·  Facilitate technical cooperation to help economies implement TRIPS Agreement.

TILF/ASF Justification

The project applies to the Sub-Fund on Innovative Development, Economic Reform and Growth of the APEC Support Fund, as it directly contributes with the APEC Accord on Innovative Development, Economic Reform and Growth by promoting cooperation in science and innovation; and promoting the use and commercialization of intellectual property. 

The project pursues knowledge transfer for the creation and increase of APEC independent inventors’ capacities to deal with commercialization goals around patented inventions. This will be mostly achieved by systematizing and sharing experiences and lessons learned in key specific areas from successful independent inventors within the region, both from developed and developing economies that will contribute, specially, to strengthen the technical capacities of the developing economies within the region.

Beneficiaries and Outputs

Outputs: As part of the independent inventor´s toolkit, the project will deliver an Inventor´s Handbook aimed at APEC independent inventors. This Handbook will seek to address patent management & technology transfer/commercialization references, recommendations, business strategies, resources and guidance towards increasing commercial success probabilities regarding independent inventors’ efforts when conducting patents to the market. The Handbook will be prepared based on a process of study and systematization of challenges, lessons learned and best practices experienced by APEC successful independent inventors. This process will be completed through survey applications to those independent inventors identified and suggested by government officials from each member economy, as well as through in-depth SKYPE interviews to 10 particular cases. An independent inventor might find in the Handbook, for example, business strategies implemented to reach the market with a patented product, recommendations to identify and confront specific common challenges, patent management and valuation suggestions, advice on how to identify the right business partners and most adequate legal agreement, criteria to recognize a certain type of inventor and the best strategy to be followed, useful online and offline resources for invention commercialization, among other issues. The document will also seek to provide a brief overview of 4 independent inventors´ particular stories identified through the Project, as well as to recognize, detect and highlight main common elements between all stories, in different areas concerning patent management & technology transfer/commercialization. The Handbook will be distributed to APEC economies, encouraging them to disseminate it among local independent inventors (and MSMEs sector). The ultimate intention of the Handbook is to directly boost independent inventors´ capacities and skills to manage and transfer or commercialize patented technologies. 

The project will also include the issuance of a Final Report for Policy Recommendations aimed at APEC government officials and policymakers. This Report will contain an analysis of the APEC independent inventors’ overall enabling environment, current situation, public supportive policies, programs or strategies, as well as their economic and social influence to APEC economies. The report will be prepared based on survey applications to APEC government officials related to IP and innovation institutions, complemented both, through review of secondary documentation and data available on the Internet and through SKYPE interviews to those three economies considered to have the best environment to nurture independent inventors. The Final Report will provide a set of policy recommendations to design, propose and improve national strategies aim at enhancing independent inventors’ enabling environment and conditions so as to increase their contribution to economic and business development in the APEC region.

Outcomes: The Inventor´s Handbook is intended to empower APEC independent inventors with a set of knowledge and skills to cope with patent management and technology transfer/commercialization processes and challenges when developing inventions based on intellectual property protection and utilization. Such capacities will be possible to attain through the access to information and guidance, provided by the Handbook, which is going to be build based on similar situations faced by other independent inventors that have succeeded to conduct their inventions to the market.

On the other hand, the Report for Policy Recommendations will provide APEC economies, especially to intellectual property and innovation government officials and policymakers, with recommendations to improve the independent inventors’ current enabling environment so as to strengthen their contribution to APEC economies (through MSMEs creation or business linkages), as well as recommendations to plan or define national policies and strategies to foster independent inventor’s knowledge and managerial abilities around patents.

Beneficiaries: Beneficiaries of the project will be the vast majority of APEC regular independent inventors, which will benefit from previous successful experiences in the intellectual property field by consulting the Inventor’s Handbook around key areas of patent management and technology transfer/commercialization within their inventions’ purposes and processes. Other beneficiaries include APEC intellectual property and/or innovation policymakers, government officials or representatives, which will benefit through the Final Report for Policy Recommendations aimed at improving independent inventors’ enabling environment.

Additional beneficiaries of this project will be MSMEs and other potential independent inventors’ commercialization partners, since toolkit will give insights regarding licensing or strategic alliances schemes between companies and independent inventors, therefore seeking to make more efficient local economic relationships. In a long term, the project will benefit developing non-APEC economies, as it will provide relevant information on patent management and technology commercialization, as well as successful experiences within the APEC region.

Dissemination

The Inventor’s Handbook will be electronically delivered to intellectual property and/or innovation agencies from APEC member economies and encouraging them to be distributed in the same form and/or through own specific activities, among their independent inventors’ and researchers’ community.

The Final Report containing policies recommendations will be distributed as a physical publication, along with its correspondent USB material, to government entities in APEC economies related to the intellectual property and/or the innovation field. The Report is intended to be used as an internal institutional reference document for the design and implementation of policies in the APEC region.

Furthermore, both documents will be presented during the Second Intellectual Property Experts Group (IPEG) meeting, at the margin of SOM3 in Papua New Guinea in 2018, in order to formally present the results of the project and encourage members to share documents with their economies’ stakeholders.

Gender

Women represent an important part of the research and invention force in many countries. The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) estimates that about 30% of international patent applications submitted through WIPO in 2015 had at least one female inventor member[1]. Therefore, this project will encourage intellectual property and/or innovation agencies in the APEC region to identify local women inventors’ stories as part of the successful experiences and best practices on patent management and technology transfer/commercialization that will be mapped, analyzed and systematized through the Inventor’s Handbook. In addition, this document will seek to emphasize and refer to examples of women inventor cases taken into account and the specific and particular challenges they have overcome, so that it serves as a source of reference, inspiration and model for new generations of young female inventors. Likewise, female independent inventors working on innovation or research initiatives will have the possibility to take the Handbook as a guidance and reference to nurture and flourish their particular inventive spirit and ventures. 

Furthermore, both the Inventor´s Handbook and the Final Report for Policy Recommendations will constitute instruments developed to encourage and facilitate the increase of opportunities for commercial success of patents registered by independent inventors within the APEC region, including women inventors.

Risks

Low completion rate of surveys: Some APEC economies might find less important the independent inventors’ sector as compared to the MSMEs field, therefore reducing their incentives to respond to the survey submitted to officials. Against this, a close and continuous communication will be sought between Peru’s Ministry of Foreign Trade (Mincetur) and / or Indecopi with the entities responsible for completing the surveys. Also, brief complementary information will be prepared and sent along with surveys to evidence the importance and contribution of independent inventors’ activities within the APEC region. 

Few inventors’ mapping: There is always the possibility that some APEC members will not be able to identify or provide success stories of independent inventors in their respective economies, due to a lack of awareness. In order to avoid jeopardizing the process of systematizing a significant number of experiences, it will be necessary to map several contacts of inventors per each economy, so that the lack of inventors of some economies could be replaced by others.

Lack of design or adoption of policies: The risk of APEC economies not adopting recommended policies to boost the independent inventors’ sector will seek to be addressed by demonstrating the sector's contribution to APEC economies and to the development of the region’s entrepreneurial sphere, as well as by presenting the Final Report for Policy Recommendations to APEC economies.

Consultant’s delay in providing deliverables: There is the possibility that the consultant would not be able to provide the deliverables on time due to the fact that the agents involved in the project do not always provide the information on time. Therefore, requesting the consultant for the use of contingency plans and production of reports to help measure and monitor project progress and close monitoring of the project time plan will be a way to manage the risk.

Monitoring and Evaluation

Throughout the implementation of the project, actions will be taken to ensure an adequate monitoring and evaluation of progress and results obtained in order to reach the expected objectives. This work will be led by the Project Overseer; in which he will conduct the following activities:

·  Permanent e-mail coordination, with the Project Consultant for the interaction and constant feedback to the day-to-day work, as well as for the following-up actions regarding the logistical and/or operative needs required during project implementation.

·  SKYPE or in-person bi-weekly meetings, with the Project Consultant, so as to follow-up on the relevance of the work carried-out, the planning and/or review of the documents produced, as well as of the established deadlines for the service. Meetings will be arranged and conducted considering a detailed Gantt Diagram (bar chart illustrating the project’s detailed schedule/actions) that will be asked to be prepared by the Consultant prior to the beginning of its service, based on the Project Work Plan matrix.

·  Monitoring of outputs, which will be done controlling and verifying compliance with the outputs established in the Project Work Plan matrix and within the pre-established deadlines. This monitoring activity will also be performed on a bi-weekly basis, so that possible deviations from the expected results can be detected and corrective measures implemented.

·  Objectives achievement evaluation, which will be done by measuring the following key indicators:

Linkages

This project does not duplicate previous workshops or initiatives at APEC. In fact, it must be noted that while guidebooks for SMEs have been worked previously, this project focuses on independent inventors, which is a sector with very specific and particular needs that differ from other sectors involved on patent management and/or technology transfer. Hence supporting them will contribute to reduce the gap of technology commercialization that can be find regarding more advanced economies. 

APEC constitutes an unbeatable sphere to carry out this project, due to the coexistence of developed and developing or emerging economies that will allow to find enriching experiences of independent inventors with commercial success acting in different contexts, but facing similar challenges. In this way, cross-learning will be a main result of the project: from advanced to developing economies and vice versa, as well as from developing to developing economies.

Sustainability

The intention of the project is to develop a toolkit composed of an Inventor’s Handbook, as well as of a Final Report for Policy Recommendations for consultation and application purposes by a target beneficiary group. Being documents that will be developed and disseminated through the use of virtual means, once the APEC Project is finished, these documents will remain at a permanent disposal for both, independent inventors and APEC officials and policymakers. 

In the case of the Inventor’s Handbook, the sustainability of expected results will be determined by the degree of involvement of APEC economies in disseminating its scope and content to independent inventors, who are seeking to get acquainted with experiences that overcome challenges similar to those they usually confront regarding patent management & technology commercialization/transfer. In the case of the Final Report for Policy Recommendations, sustainability will be achieved by voluntarily implementing proposed suggestions to strengthen the independent inventors’ contribution to APEC economies.

The overall sustainability of the project and of its impact will be pursued through the following strategy:

i) Identify and highlight the current importance of independent inventors within economic, social and business development of APEC emerging and most advanced economies in such a way to encourage the majority of these economies to pay special attention to independent inventors´ support strategies;

ii) The importance of independent inventors for APEC will be included as part of the Final Report for Policy Recommendations, being available to all economies once the document is distributed;

iii) Direct support will be sought from the Projects´ sponsoring economies (Chile, Russia and Mexico), so that together with Peru will seek to commit the rest of APEC economies to adopt suggested policies to strengthen the contribution of independent inventors to the region through the improvement of the enabling environment conducive to optimize patent commercialization opportunities; and lastly

iv) The Inventor's Handbook, as well as the Final Report will be presented during IPEG 2, raising participants’ awareness about the importance of supporting independent inventors and seeking to transmit Project’s results with key policymakers.
