Academics often don’t realise that the way their research will impact the world is through commercialisation and exploitation - and this in turn relies heavily on intellectual property (IP), including having a portfolio which is appealing to investors and collaborators.
Having enough knowledge of how IP works and of the key issues to spot “red flags”, whilst still at the lab bench or in the early stages of founding a company, is invaluable and can help avoid making irreparable mistakes.
In this session, Sara Holland and Dave Holt will equip attendees with foundational information regarding IP (with a focus on patents) in the context of the research scientist and scientist founder - what it is, how to get it, and what to do with it once you have it - and be available to answer any questions.
This webinar is part of the Biochemistry Focus webinar series, organised by the Biochemical Society and Portland Press.
