The REPLICATE team of creative thinkers from research and private sector assembled at Trinity Hall, Cambridge for their third face to face meeting – Oct. 17-19. The inspiring setting supported deeper thinking to further progress this leading edge EU H2020 R&D project. The creative tools and components being developed are intended to provide advanced commercial creative possibilities for digital creative professionals, enhance the digital creative life of connected EU citizens and stimulate mass market digital creativity.
Trinity Hall, with its gardens, its architecture and its riverside site, hidden between its larger neighbours, is one of the most attractive colleges in Cambridge with a very strong tradition in the study of Law. The REPLICATE team convened in the Graham Storey room and worked through the project component work packages and impending deliverables – drawing upon the famous local adage “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants” - Isaac Newton
Subsequent to 2 days of meetings and discussions at Trinity Hall, a one day IPR session organised by T2i took place at the Cambridge Union Society. The Cambridge Union is the oldest debating society in the world, and the largest student society in Cambridge. The Union is an appropriately unique forum for the free exchange of ideas and the art of public debate and has hosted such great figures as Winston Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt and the current Dalai Lama. The CU continues to provide Cambridge students with the opportunity to meet and question the people that shape our world, and has grown into the central forum for student discussion in Cambridge.
The 2Ti IPR session took place in the CU library and covered IPR, TRADEMARK, PATENTS, DESIGN and COPYRIGHT issues and was led by Head of "Industrial Property Rights" department Ms. Elisa Toniolo, senior Intellectual Property Information Analyst and IPR advisor. The day was divided in two sub-slots – the morning focused on current requirements and the afternoon related specifically to the REPLICATE platform and content upload/download. Elisa skilfully guided the REPLICATE team through current state-of-the-art thinking and the team enjoyed the historic surroundings and at the end of the day relaxed together around the student snooker table.
