Protecting and Commercialising your Research
Tuesday 23rd October 2018 at 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Are you looking for a grant of up to £5000 to help commercialise your research?
Do you know how to correctly protect your research? Smart Concept Fund is running a session on the 23rd October offering researchers the opportunity to protect their research and start the commercialisation process.
During the session we will:
- Introduce an ERDF grant that can be used to assess the commercial potential of your research.
- Identify the technology commercialisation pathways that enable you to demonstrate research impact: spin-outs, licensing, patenting and industrial partnerships.
- Discuss the role of intellectual property rights protection in technology commercialisation.
- Provide guidance on how to balance the need to protect your intellectual property and achieve publication.
Aimed at active researchers, this session is focused on building an understanding of how to achieve impact through technology commercialisation.
The session will be delivered by members of the University’s technology transfer office and fully qualified patent agents.
