Launch of the report “Intellectual Property and Education in Europe”

The European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights recently shared the report “Intellectual Property and Education in Europe”, designed to assist educational policymakers in Member States to meet the challenge of the digital era. This report is based on how intellectual property is taught in primary and secondary schools in the EU Member States, benchmarked against school curricula in the most innovative non EU countries and regions according to 2014 WIPO’s Global Innovation Index. Both public and private education sectors were analysed covering age groups from 4 to 18 years old.   
 
The study also includes results per country, stating that in Portugal IP is an integrated topic from primary to upper secondary general level. Patents are mentioned in the context of economics, and copyright in Information and communications technology. It is also referenced through entrepreneurship, and plagiarism is discussed at all three levels of education. From the start of education on, students are taught respect for copyright and to avoid plagiarism. The report states that not only in Portugal, but also across all EU countries “copyright is the most referenced IP right within the official school curricula at all levels and in all countries and regions assessed, leaving other IP rights such as design, patent and trademarks, far behind”.
