1. Information platform building of intellectual property right
SUNWARD set up the SUNWARD information harbor of technical center with the patent information platform imported from America Thomsen science and Technology Information Group, as well as the RPM project management platform, standard text information system base, science and technology document database and SUNWARD local patent information database as the common body. The use and deep processing of patent information has helped avoid long R&D cycle, repeated research with no obvious customer-orientation, minimizing the risk of infringement.
2. Intellectual property system and commercialization of research findings
SUNWARD has established a sound intellectual property system including "R&D project management regulation", "Patent bonus regulation", and "Science paper regulation", in which the property right has been taken into consideration of all levels of R&D project assessment. The results of the assessment link to the performance and bonus of the R&D staff, and provide the practical standard of assessment of the innovation activity.
Meanwhile, SUNWARD takes the commercialization of the patent as the assessment standard of the quality of the property right and checks the results of the property right and innovation activities by the market performance. The annual commercialization rate should be no less than 80%, and the products with the proprietary intellectual property rights should account for more than 80% of the total sales.
