The state government, through the Public Supervisory Authority for Science, Technology and Higher Education, announced on Tuesday (13) the result of the first version of the Intellectual Property Support Program with a focus on the market (Prime). The project has a partnership with the Araucária Foundation and the Support Service for Micro and Small Enterprises in Paraná (Sebrae / PR).
In the first edition, 21 projects were selected in seven public universities. Prime’s goal is to contribute to the economic and social development of the entire country by transferring the results of academic research conducted in the nation’s universities to the market.
The initiative targets researchers and patent holders. Selected professionals will receive support to make their invention possible. This project will encourage an entrepreneurial culture in the academic environment.
For the Director of Science, Technology and Higher Education, Aldo Nelson Bona, the program encourages the creation of innovative companies and fosters an entrepreneurial culture in the university community. “We want to stimulate new entrepreneurial skills and competencies in public universities, and to adopt entrepreneurship as a business strategy, to support new technological solutions in Paraná,” he says.
One of the most accredited projects was Western Paraná State University (Unioeste), eight in total. UENP then appears with five select proposals and four proposals have been approved by Midwestern State University (Unicentro).
Parana State University (Unespar) has also been involved in Eclecticism and has two accredited projects. Both Londrina State University (UEL) and Maringa State University (UEM) had a specific project.
