Room York
Code SISA7

Suzanne Gregson, Head of Innovation Policy, Intellectual Property Office

Jenny Vaughan, Senior Policy Advisor, Intellectual Property Office


This session will provide an insight into the role of the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) as the official UK government department responsible for UK intellectual property (IP) policy, granting UK IP rights, improving IP awareness and education.  

The session will detail the tools and resources tailored for academia to support a greater awareness and understanding of IP, and specifically the new IP for Research toolkit designed for PhD and early career researchers on how IP fits into the commercialisation of their research.  There will be an opportunity to provide feedback to the IPO on what IP resources they could develop for the research community.
