EADS to Share Nanotech Patents with Russian Agency

The European aerospace consortium EADS and the Russian nanotechnology corporation RUSNANO have agreed to collaborate on research and development of nanotechnology-related products.  The first stage of the partnership is to identify relevant patents in the EADS portfolio suited for new development by Russian industry.

The EADS Group includes the Airbus, Astrium, Cassidian, and Eurocopter organizations, which generate revenues of €45.8 billion ($US 62.2 billion) and employ a workforce of nearly 122,000. RUSNANO was founded in March 2011 as a reorganization of the Russian state corporation of nanotechnologies, but still wholly-owned by the Russian government. RUSNANO’s mission is to develop the Russian nanotechnology industry through co-investment in nanotechnology projects with substantial economic potential or social benefit.

EADS says its licensing procedures can reduce the time required for implementation, minimize risks of patent infringement, and ensure that all controls and processes are applied. The company offers training, engineering support, and assistance in the establishment of these procedures.

In 2003, EADS established a technology office to encourage collaboration with the Russian research and development community. Since its opening, says EADS, this office has already managed more than 100 cooperative research and technology programs. EADS is also participating in Russia’s Skolkovo Innovation Centre.
