Introduction to Impact & IP | TBC | tysdag, 12. mai 2020

With REF and the competitive funding environment, impact forms an important part of the research landscape. However it can be a challenge to work out how to connect your research to changes, benefits and influence in the ‘real world’. This session is designed to help you understand what impact is, who may benefit from your research, how you can generate and capture impact and how you can meaningfully connect impact with own your research.

What is the role of intellectual property (IP) rights? What IP rights are required to disseminate, protect and exploit university research? This session will take an interactive and engaging look at the role of IP and its importance in the area of university research. It will introduce PGRs to the five main types of IP and explain their uses and benefits. The IP rights covered will include copyrights, confidentiality, patents, trademarks and designs. It will provide practical hands-on advice, relevant examples and useful case studies to enable attendees to put IP in the context of the outcomes of their research activities.

More readily identify IP rights in research outcomes
Better use IP rights to support your research goals
Understand the important role of IP rights in managing collaborations with partners
Gain an awareness of the practice of registering/securing IP rights
Recognise/avoid actions that weaken or prevent IP rights being secured
