The project aims to create and implement a system for the submission of information on anti-counterfeiting products by manufacturers, along with an information service for companies on potential applications based on anti-counterfeiting technologies.
The online service for the presentation of anti-counterfeiting technologies to companies – based on the collection and categorization of those technologies – will aid understanding in the fields of the application and the limits of use of the various technologies available.
For each technology, the main technical characteristics and the sectors of use will be reported so that companies can obtain information about the technology that best suits their needs.
Specifically, the project activities are the following:
Implementation of technological infrastructure
The aim of this activity is to complete the Anti-Counterfeiting Guidance Service of the Dgtpi-Uibm by offering to public a submission form to report anti-counterfeiting products, drawn up as part of the Uibm-ATA project. To this end, it is envisaged that the FUB, as an interim solution, will make the WEB application operative on its own systems, with redirection from the website of the Dgtpi-Uibm.
In a later phase, the WEB application will be adapted to the IT management policies of the Minister of Economic Development (MISE), after which the FUB will perform the migration to the Dgtpi-Uibm systems of the WEB form and the respective database containing the submissions received during the period of operation of the interim solution.
System management and maintenance
The purpose of the activity is to assist Dgtpi-Uibm in the management of the product submission process by companies producing anti-counterfeiting technologies, starting with the deployment of the interim solution.
Periodic updates are planned of the online anti-counterfeiting technologies on the Dgtpi-Uibm on the basis of any innovative technologies emerging in monitoring activities.
Support for international activity
The FUB will provide support to the Dgtpi-Uibm in the participation in the international working group, the Expert Group on Anti-counterfeiting Technologies of the European Observatory on Intellectual Property of EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office), which deals with the creation, at a European level, of an information service on anti-counterfeiting technologies, which is expected to have similar features to the Dgtpi-Uibm service.
