      • BRE13 - Patents in the maritime and marine sectors: educational and playful app for a worldwide exploration

          • Design and implement a simple and educational online app to allow easy and funny access to worldwide free patent databases so as to raise everybody’s awareness about the proliferation of innovation in the marine and maritime sectors.

            Patent databases represent a substantial and often underestimated source of information: it is commonly said that 80% of worldwide public technical information is available in patent documents. For example, the Espacenet database developed by the European Patent Office (EPO) collects more than 120 million patent documents worldwide, many of which have fallen into the public domain, and publishes millions of new ones every year.

            Our challenge is to create a playful application capable of searching such free patent databases on marine technologies and of extracting results in an interactive way that is readily intelligible by all publics. Search results will be displayed with illustrations and pics for any targeted area of interest, with detailed access to each patent document.

            The challenge requires:

            • expertise in intellectual property (IP);
            • ability to extract and manipulate data, design an interactive application and present results in a didactic and graphic manner.

            This tool will aim at raising awareness about the contribution of patented inventions to the maritime and/or marine fields, so as to trigger imagination and foster entrepreneurship in a world where innovation often arises in surprising ways from unexpected actors.
