The participants in the seminar were active in debates and discussions on the information presented, being particularly interested in the protection of medicinal preparations, as well as in the practical aspects of preparing the necessary documents for requesting and obtaining patent protection for a new product or process in the field. In the same context, the importance of innovation in society and the need to support young researchers and inventors in the field of medicine were mentioned.
