IPPI aims at integrating the current training activity regarding Intellectual Property focusing on innovation and entrepreneurship with innovative tools specifically developed for teenagers 13-18 in order to learn to appreciate the role of IP protection as part of the business idea development process and of our common European standards both as entrepreneurs as well as consumers.
Cross-border activities and collaborations (Italy and Spain) are fundamental in understanding the global nature of businesses and consequently the international relevance of IP protection. Young people tend in fact to consider the national market as the main market for their ideas and need to be supported in r the possibility of scaling up and protecting ideas at international levels. The best practices approach will also benefit from a transnational narrative, as different business environments can be helpful in cross-fertilization of ideas.
The general objectives of the project are:
- • Developing effective and innovative training tools based on interactive approaches, where young people can understand the role of IP protection for healthy business and consumer environments. The learning activities and infotainment material (that is, material which is intended both to entertain and to inform) will be partly based on gamification and game theory and will include material on best practices learned directly from the main actors
- • Giving young people at school the opportunity to learn from best practices, in particular from people of a close age group, on innovation, business start upping and the role of IP protection in the process as well as the importance of a healthy business and consumers environment linked to IP protection and of preventing sanctions and legal disputes.
- • Giving young people at school the opportunity to test and apply their creativity with role playing and strategy planning linked to the role of IP protection in the process of business idea development.
- • Infusing young people at school with the intrinsic international nature of markets and the importance of cross-fertilization through cross-border face-to-face and online learning and playing activities.
Target groups: IPPI focuses on teenagers 13-18. According to the partner experience this is a very important phase to develop creativity and start working within an entrepreneurial mind-set. Giving young people, which are still outside of the work environment but are now an important consumer segment.
The project is based on the idea that especially for young students co-designing and being involved in different phases of a production process is one of the most effective learning experiences
