The KnowING IPR project aims to facilitate innovation in the Danube Region by developing a transnational open access platform - KnowING Hub - which will provide the tools needed to analyze and determine the state of the art in a particular field, track the progress of emerging technologies, identify solutions to various problems providing free access to millions of patent documents around the world and also to an impressive number of publications in various technical fields.
The KnowING IPR project, implemented under the Danube Transnational Programme funded by the European Union, consists of a regional consortium comprising partners from the following countries: Slovenia, Slovakia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Romania, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republic of Moldova, and Ukraine).
