Broadening your research impact
Research impact tends to be viewed through a narrow lens which limits the potential for reach and capitalization. By broadening both the view and approach to research impact, researchers can begin to expand and increase the opportunities it provides. We begin this ATT series by exploring IPR protection vs. publication and highlighting how viewing research funding from a strategic and creative perspective can expand the potential for reach, influence and impact.

The challenge of Intellectual Property Rights in research activities
Michele Dubbini, European IPR Helpdesk
Intellectual Property Rights are a challenge to researchers. Several concepts need to be considered to have a sustainable strategy concerning the protection of your scientific activity. In this training, the European IPR Helpdesk will go through some basic concepts (open access, green and gold open access, eligibility of publication costs) and will also tackle the researchers’ doubts on publishing vs. patenting in view of a viable strategy to disseminate and capitalize their findings.

International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP)
Antje Voelke, IPMA
The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) is an international marine research collaboration that explores Earth's history and dynamics using ocean-going research platforms to recover data recorded in seafloor sediments and rocks and to monitor subseafloor environments. In this session, some opportunities for researchers will be presented since Portugal is one of the twenty-three nations whose scientists are selected to staff IODP research expeditions conducted throughout the world's oceans.

COST Actions in Biological Sciences
Rui Munhá, FCT
COST supports collaborative transnational activities under a system of networks of investigators based on open access and bottom-up principles, covering all scientific and technological domains. These networks, designated COST Actions, enable breakthrough scientific developments contributing to the Europe's leadership in RDI. Let us find out how the existing COST Actions are relevant for Biological Sciences and how can we propose and get funding for new actions tackling a specific scientific domain.
