Format: Workshop
Suitable for: All

Intellectual property is the product of thought, creativity and intellectual effort covering inventions, knowhow, literary and artistic works, designs, symbols, names and images. Intellectual property rights, for example, patents, copyright and trademarks, are the way by which we protect and commercialise our research. By striking the right balance between the interests of innovators and the wider public interest, the intellectual property system aims to foster an environment in which creativity and innovation can flourish.

This full-day workshop, which is run by Vitae and the Intellectual Property Office with input from the University’s Commercial Development team, will provide an introduction to the world of intellectual property and will be of interest to researchers from all disciplines. In particular, it will show participants how to navigate the intellectual property environment, highlighting the potential opportunities for researchers to maximise the impact of their research. By attending the workshop, you will receive:

• An introduction to intellectual property, the Intellectual Property Office and why intellectual property is important;
• A discussion of intellectual property rights (copyright, patents, design and trademarks);
• An overview of the University’ s approach to intellectual property, the role of the Technology Transfer office and their support for research projects;
• Case studies on the protection and commercialisation of University intellectual property.
