Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The course aims at providing theoretical and practical skills to guide and coordinate R&D&I activities.

More in detail, it consists of two complementary parts: the first concerns the exploitation of patents as a source of technical information for competitive intelligence and information extraction supporting innovation activities. This part of the program covers Intellectual Property fundamentals and patentability criteria; it provides theoretical and practical skills for patent search and patent analysis, both through manual and computer-based tools. A special focus will be dedicated to knowledge resources in the field of green technologies. The second part of the module is dedicated to a survey of the main mechanisms characterizing the competition between alternative technologies, the main models describing the dynamics of innovation and a detailed description of the most recent technology forecasting methodologies.


Risultati di apprendimento attesi

By the end of the course, students will learn contents and practices according to what is defined in the learning objectives.

 

In terms of acquired knowledge and understanding, students will be able to:

- interpret and describe the characteristic features of design creativity, inventions, innovation and sustainable development;

- identify the industrial applications of systematic methods and tools supporting innovation development in industry;

- describe the main stages of a Life Cycle Assessment study and the modelling techniques needed to represent elementary flows of resources and phases of the life cycle of a product/process;

- summarize fundamentals of Intellectual Property protection, patentability criteria and patent application process.

 

Concerning the ability to apply the acquired knowledge and understanding, students will be able to:  

- perform a patent search for priority searches and for identifying opportunities to transfer solutions between different technological domains;

- check whether a technical solution infringes an existing patent and propose alternatives for patent circumvention;

- analyse a technical system in terms of evolutionary potential and identify possible technological developments.

 

Eventually, project work activities will allow students to

- develop collaboration abilities through the interaction with the teammates;

- develop communication skills through the interaction with the industrial tutors;

- develop learning abilities by autonomously acquiring information and data needed for the development of the project activities.


Argomenti trattati

Intellectual Property: fundamentals, patentability criteria, patent application process (IT, EP, PCT). Structure and features of a patent document. Patent search: patent databases, functionalities and limitations. Patent classifications: IPC, ECLA, FI, CPC. Patent analysis: statistical analysis and bibliometrics. Patent strategies and techniques for patent breaking.

Elements of Text-mining. Computational linguistics applications for patent mining.  

Technological diffusion: from invention to innovation. Competitive product development and Knowledge needs. Competition models: pure competition, pray/predator, symbiotic, parasitic. Types and Patterns of Innovation: product/process, breakthrough/incremental, competence enhancing/competence destroying.

Innovation from the user’s perspective: customer requirements classification models, value innovation.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals as a driver of innovation. Classification of green technologies and available knowledge resources.

Methods and tools for Technology Forecasting: classification, potentialities and limitations. Exemplary techniques for Technology Forecasting: Delphi Method; Logistic growth model, Logistic Substitution model; Innovation diffusion models; TRIZ-based forecasting. 


Prerequisiti

General undergraduate engineering knowledge is sufficient to proficiently attend the course.


Modalità di valutazione

The course consists of lectures and practice sessions, including a collaborative project driven by an industrial case study proposed by partner companies.

The evaluation is based on:

- an individual written test based on the practical sessions proposed in the semester;

- on a project work developed in team evaluated also by industry executives;

- on a video where students are requested to elaborate a chosen topic among those included in the course syllabus.

 

More specifically, the assessment of the module consists of the followings:
- (50%) a written open-book individual test (for each module) with exercises similar to those proposed within the practice sessions, aimed at checking the acquisition of the knowledge and related application abilities; some exercises require the application of the software tools presented within the semester;

-(50%) a project work developed in team (3-4 members each): evaluation is based on the review sessions along the semester and on the final presentation embedding a short video to communicate the project. The project work allows to check thr achievement of expected results in terms of application abilities, learning and communication skills.
