Patenting an invention: from idea to protection
Many inventions have revolutionised – and continue to revolutionise – our everyday life. From the wheel to writing, printing to electricity, cars to radio, television to the Internet. Also in the field of rubber objects and tyres, countless innovations have brought great changes to the ways in which we move and travel. With the assistance of an expert from the Pirelli Industrial Property Department, the course will show what it takes to realise a new invention – the outcome of a lengthy research process – and how it can be protected. By means of games and simulations, the children will learn about the salient characteristics of a patent, which is essential for protecting and exploiting the ideas we've kept tucked away.
