IP for research

Intellectual Property logo again 

In 2018/2019, Vitae delivered 15 IP for Research events throughout the UK on behalf of the Intellectual Property Office, working in close association with the host institutions, a range of universities across the UK. 

“A really engaging and entertaining speaker and communicated ideas excellently” Quote from  Leeds workshop participant

Each workshop introduced researchers to intellectual property and encouraged them to reflect on its implications for their own research area.

Topics included patents, design rights, trademarks, commercialisation of IP and the role of the Technology Transfer Office at the institution. 

Over 250 researchers have been trained so far and feedback from the workshops has been extremely positive

A “live-lecture” webinar was also piloted and was very well-received by participants, both for the informative content and the convenience and accessibility of the on-line, interactive format.

 "The format was very useful and being able to combine technology for polling and videos was very helpful" Quote from Live lecture participant
