The Nuts and Bolts of Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer
Date & Time
Together with UBC’s University-Industry Liaison Office (UILO), the Postdoctoral Fellows Office and Graduate Pathways to Success are proud to present a workshop that provides you with an essential understanding of intellectual property (IP) and academic technology transfer.
This 1/2-day workshop will help you:
- gain a general understanding of the field of intellectual property.
- understand the various stages and timelines in the process of obtaining a patent.
- utilize the free resources available to conduct a structured prior-art search yourself.
- participate in technology transfer processes.
This program is experimental and gives you opportunities to reflect on the value of IP, conduct a patent search, and learn about technology transfer processes from real-world case studies.
After participating, you will be:
- aware of the importance and strategic use of IP.
- able to find patents of interest and to evaluate the IP position of a technology.
- never again confused about whether this patent has been examined/issued/expired.
- confident to engage in technology transfer processes as a researcher.
- attentive to “red-flags” in regard to IP in research collaborations with other groups, institutions, organisations, or industry.
