A lack of IP awareness means that some researchers are missing an opportunity to commercialise their work or are failing to prevent others from unfairly exploiting their research. This course enables students to work out what they need to protect their work and to take the necessary steps to secure such protection. Included are:
* an introduction to IP
* types of IP: trademarks, patents, copyright, design rights
* technology transfer
* commercialisation in higher education

The video elements are presented by Adam Hart-Davis, well-known BBC documentary presenter.

This online course will take about two hours to complete, but may be done in several visits.
