IPICA - Results Factsheet

Areas for improvement in the intellectual project rights and knowledge transfer (IPR & KT) regimes in Caribbean countries were identified and awareness raising activities targeted at policy makers on good practices in innovation processes took place. Macro and micro level studies were conducted, their recommendations reviewed by national and regional multi-stakeholder forums, and policy recommendations made for filling gaps in national innovation systems. A policy white paper on IPR & KT good practices was produced. Innovation capacities of organisation leaders and policy makers of research organisations, energy sector technology transfer practitioners and inventors and social entrepreneurs were enhanced. Winners of the ‘E(nergy)-efficiency ideas competition’ were awarded with a full-scale mentoring programme providing expert input and support from experienced entrepreneurs and professionals with market knowledge, networks and intellectual project management expertise.
