An Introduction to Intellectual Property - Workshop

An Introduction to Intellectual Property - Workshop
29 November 2017
12:00 - 15:00

Intellectual property (IP) describes a wide variety of ‘creations of the mind’ that are inherently intangible, often the result of creativity and innovation which can be owned in a similar way to physical property. The protection of the IP inherent in any new idea/ innovation enables people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create; and in the university environment, facilitates external investment to take an idea to market.

IP is protected in law, in a number of different forms including patents, copyright, design rights and trademarks. Obtaining IP rights involves different processes and requirements. The aim of this seminar will be to explain how to identify what IP is protectable and to outline the processes relating to these forms to obtain IP rights.

Lunch will be provided.

Optional one to one's with the University of Birmingham IP Team

There will also be an opportunity from 2-3pm for 1 to 1 meetings with the University of Birmingham IP team to talk through any ideas and innovations you may have.  To book a 1.1 meeting with a member of the IP team email
