European Research and Innovation Days 2021
European Research and Innovation Days is the European Commission’s annual flagship Research and Innovation event, bringing together policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and the public to debate and shape the future of research and innovation in Europe and beyond.
Date: The event will take place online on 23 and 24 June 2021, allowing everyone to get involved from anywhere.
This year marks the start of Horizon Europe, our most ambitious EU research and innovation programme ever and will be a decisive moment to strengthen our European Research Area. Cooperation in research and innovation is essential in our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and will pave the way to a greener and more digital future. The European Research and Innovation Days represent a unique opportunity to add your voice to the conversation.
The event is all about collaboration: bringing together individuals and experts from all areas to build connections and ignite a brighter future.
Virtual training program
The Directorate of Inventions and New Technologies (DIN) of Indecopi makes this initiative available to academic, research and business institutions throughout the country that will allow them to request the programming of free VIRTUAL TRAINING activities on patents and other topics intellectual property rights, which they consider to suit their own training needs and interests.
These trainings may be of two types:
1. Training without proof Indecopi:
Under this modality, the training could be composed of one or more independent sessions and for which Indecopi does not issue certificates of participation to the attendees for any reason (however, the requesting entity could deliver said certificates to the participants, depending on to their own criteria).
2. Indecopi training with constancy:
Under this modality, the training must consist of at least 3 sessions and the participants will take an online knowledge assessment at the end of the program. In this type of activity, participants will obtain a certificate from Indecopi (unless otherwise agreed with the requesting entity) as long as they obtain in the final evaluation a score greater than or equal to 12 out of 20 points and have attended at least 70% of the training sessions.

Virtual Course ‘Patents as valuable instruments for research, invention and technological innovation processes’.
This course has been developed by the National Institute for the Defense of Competition and the Protection of Intellectual Property (Indecopi), in conjunction with the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia.
Patents are part of the instruments of the intellectual property system. These act as vehicles that help facilitate and support research, invention and technological innovation activities by granting exclusivity rights.
Therefore, this course seeks to teach and develop in an introductory and basic way the general and comprehensive aspects related to the patent system, which must be known by any person who is directly or indirectly involved or is going to get involved with projects of research, invention, innovation or technological entrepreneurship.
The course has been structured in eight modules so that, at the end of the complete program, the student will be able to understand and apply extensively the characteristics, particularities, scope and opportunities that the patent system poses for activities creative development.
Access to the course can be done through

The International University Congress on Communication in the profession and in today’s University: Contents, Research, Innovation and Teaching (CUICIID) will be held on October 6 and 7, 2021. In its virtual and online modality , brings together researchers from around the world for the eleventh time.
It accepts texts in their official languages: Spanish, English, Italian, French and Portuguese.
This Congress is framed within those with the greatest academic impact, those located under the concept ‘Quality of teacher training’, for combining innovation and teaching and, thanks to the review by double blind peers of the papers presented, their results they are comparable to those of more curricular value. It is the ideal place for the visibility of the work of doctoral candidates and new researchers in the most relevant academic fields.

Online Course: COVID-19 Contact Tracing
The COVID-19 crisis has created an unprecedented need for contact tracing across the country, requiring thousands of people to learn key skills quickly. The job qualifications for contact tracing positions differ throughout the country and the world, with some new positions open to individuals with a high school diploma or equivalent.
In this introductory course, students will learn about the science of SARS-CoV-2 , including the infectious period, the clinical presentation of COVID-19, and the evidence for how SARS-CoV-2 is transmitted from person-to-person and why contact tracing can be such an effective public health intervention. Students will learn about how contact tracing is done, including how to build rapport with cases, identify their contacts, and support both cases and their contacts to stop transmission in their communities. The course will also cover several important ethical considerations around contact tracing, isolation, and quarantine. Finally, the course will identify some of the most common barriers to contact tracing efforts — along with strategies to overcome them.

For a New Coexistence: Peruvian society in times of COVID-19: scenarios, policy proposals and public action
This report is a first response to the initiative of the Ministry of Health (MINSA) to establish a thematic group of Social Sciences made up of expert professionals and academics, whose task is to think about the present hour from the contribution that the social sciences can make to build a national agenda to face the current health crisis.
In this sense, the report offers a quick diagnosis and recommendations for policy and public action to face the changing scenarios that will continue to change over the coming months and perhaps years. It is about addressing complex issues about social processes that are in full development and about which our report seeks to formulate some preliminary answers.
