In October 2015, the INNOPRAC training program was carried out with the aim of solving the most common day-to-day problems encountered by personnel working in R&D+i management and protection. Due to the great need for training in the national innovation system, PONS Business School and Red Transfer joined their efforts to fill this training gap.
This program is supported by various entities such as PONS IP, the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (Fecyt), the Council of Foundations for Science, the Platform for Innovation in Medical and Healthcare Technologies (Itemas Isciii), the network of Hospital and Biosanitary Clinical Research Management Entities (Regic), the Association of Science and Technology Parks of Spain (Apte), or the Spanish Federation of Technology Centers (Fedit).
Over the course of 4 years we have grown and welcomed into our program:
This training is given in person in different cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, etc. under high quality standards. The groups are small, with a maximum of 30 students, and the practical-approach classes are given by active professionals with extensive experience and work background.
What problems does Innoprac address?
Innoprac has programs that are constantly changing. The different topics dealt with are those related to the points where our students and collaborators encounter difficulties in their daily lives.
Problems in IP asset management, H2020 cost justification, knowledge transfer, assessment and economic valuation of technologies, collaborative R&D+i projects, software protection as well as its exploitation and creation of technology-based companies, among many others.
The real problems that arise during the working day are solved through practical cases.

What is RTTP?
The RTTP acronym stands for the international standard used to accredit the knowledge and experience of a professional in the field of knowledge and technology transfer, in the academic sector or in industry.
This is a certificate promoted by the ATTP (Alliance of Technology Transfer Professionals) that demonstrates having these capabilities both in Spain and internationally, necessary for the development of a professional career in technology transfer.
Several of the courses in our Innoprac program award RTTP points, which will help you obtain the certification that very few people in the world has.
