The IFIA Research Innovation Teams Department has been approved by the Executive Committee of the International Federation of Inventors’ Associations (IFIA)
During the 46th session of the Executive Committee of the International Federation of Inventors’ Associations (IFIA), held on August 12, 2023, the IFIA Research Innovation Teams (RIT) department was officially inaugurated with a majority vote from the executive committee members of the International Federation of Inventors’ Associations (IFIA). This marks the commencement of the IFIA Research Innovation Teams department’s operations.
The Research Innovation Teams (RIT) have operated independently for the past 3 years, beginning in the year 2020. Throughout this period, they have achieved significant milestones in the field of innovation and have provided education to numerous inventors worldwide. Starting in August of this year (2023), RIT will initiate its activities as one of IFIA’s departments.
RIT is dedicated to fostering innovative ideas and bringing them to fruition. Consisting of experienced specialists with diverse skills, this team operates across various domains including innovative idea research and development, creation of initial prototypes and models, product manufacturing, branding, idea commercialization, and even providing education to inventors from all corners of the globe.
The fundamental belief of RIT centers around the potency of collaboration in generating innovative and pragmatic solutions that can make a positive impact within communities.
Based on a precise and principled understanding of the realm of inventors and idea owners, the project managers of this initiative have recognized over the years that a crucial missing link in the process of commercializing inventions and innovations is the absence of proper technical, legal, and financial justifications presented to potential investors. With established offices in Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, Iran, and Canada, all members of the team within this department are dedicated to continually enhancing these services, with the aim of better-serving inventors, innovators, startups, and other stakeholders.
The primary goal of this team is to aid individuals in transforming their ideas into successful products by offering a comprehensive range of services. This process commences with idea evaluation and advances through research and development, leveraging the technical expertise of team members, creating initial prototypes, and conducting feasibility testing of the products. Following product development, individuals receive assistance in establishing their product branding, attracting their target audience, and addressing legal and financial considerations.
Over the past 3 years, RIT has independently achieved success in 368 projects, and this impressive record of accomplishments led to RIT’s integration into IFIA as one of the federation’s initiatives in the year 2023.
It is noteworthy that RIT currently possesses 3 technical studios, 2 administrative offices, and an educational and consultancy center, enabling it to undertake up to 800 projects annually as part of the IFIA Research Innovation Teams department. RIT remains steadfast in its commitment to assisting inventors globally and is dedicated to harnessing the latest technologies and available advancements to offer advanced and innovative solutions. Its mission is to contribute to sustainable development and create environmentally-friendly products that align with social responsibilities.
