The  European Commission published the Orientation Paper Proposed priorities for innovative health research 2012.

With the objective of improving the business conditions for innovation, the Commission understands that it is important to enhance SMEs' access to IP. In this context, training actions on IPR management and knowledge transfer are foreseen for next year, as well as a complementary action focused on the “creation of a network to encourage knowledge transfer activity in FP-funded research to address the innovation lifecycle.

This document is still a working document, which may therefore change until its final publication.
