Target Audience: Academic/Research/KE & Professional Services Staff
With an opportunity to meet the University’s IP & Commercialisation team, this workshop will cover an introduction to intellectual property rights, including protection, disclosure, inventors and ownership, next steps for getting involved, and Entrepreneurship & KE training opportunities available to you. You will also have the opportunity to hear recent entrepreneurship success stories and ask questions regarding the commercialisation process at Strathclyde.
Exploring Entrepreneurship is an element of staff induction for new Academic, Research, KE and Admin & Professional Services staff. It covers the immediate practicalities of intellectual property, including protection, disclosure, inventors & ownership. Should any new staff wish to continue on an Entrepreneurial journey, this course will explain the next step for getting involved, including the Entrepreneurship and KE training & development that is available via SPIRAL and SPARK. The course will present case studies of recent entrepreneurial success and introduce the IP & Commercialisation team for networking and follow-up with interested staff.
Outcomes and objectives are that all new staff understand the fundamentals of IP protection, disclosure, inventors & ownership and have information on what to do next and who to contact.
