The current innovation development model in Russia involves the integration of scientific-engineering and production spheres into the process of economical and social development of the society. In this context, it is worth mentioning that today a significant part of scientific and innovation potential of the country is concentrated in universities. Experience provides evidence that systemic approach to solving this problem is to develop innovations in the scientific, technical and educational spheres in higher education institutions.

Management of innovative development within the structure of Togliatti State University plays a special role. The structure of the Office includes four of the following departments:

1.    Intellectual Property and R&D Analysis Department

2.    Small Innovative Enterprises Liaison Department

3.    Projects Coordination Department

4.    Student R&D Coordination Department

In general, the office facilitates complex examination and consideration of new projects and solves problems of knowledge and technology commercialisation.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Office experts.

Regulatory Documents (available only for registered users of the Educational Portal)

Intellectual Property and Small Innovative Enterprises Department of Togliatti State University on contractual basis assists to create and protect intellectual property by:

·         conducting a patent search in the world's leading patent information databases  (EPO-European Patent Office, WIPO-World Intellectual Property Organization, FIPS-Federal Institute of Industrial Property (Russian Patent Office), patent offices of the United States, Japan, Germany, etc.);

·         studying technical levels of intellectual property objects, identifying trends, justifying the prognoses for their development and competitiveness within the products and services markets;

·         implementing marketing research works on the intellectual property market;

·         analysing companies’ commercial operations, including licensing  activities of developers (organisations and companies), producers (suppliers) of products, and companies offering services, as well as their patent policies to identify competitors, potential contractors, licensors and licensees, and partners for cooperation;

·         identifying trade marks (service marks) used by a competitor;

·         preparing application documents for intellectual property objects (invention, utility model, industrial design, software, database, trademark), as well as record keeping on those applications;

·         evaluating intellectual property objects (scientific and technical, technical and economical, as well as market evaluation).

SIE Council is the organisation created at the initiative of the most active inventors and entrepreneurs of TSU. Here, all the business problems are discussed and strategic decisions are made. Innovations introduction in Russia is important for everyone from the worker to the President. When starting a new project, an entrepreneur can often face a lot of problems he has never solved before, but he has no one to turn to for advice for he is the pioneer. SIE Council helps to devise the correct approach to doing business, and shares its connections and best practices.

Experts of the Innovation Development Office often join the SIE Council to provide a valuable input by sharing their knowledge or by helping to solve existing problems.
