Turning good research results into pofitable business, whether as new companies or industrial collaborations, is an essential part of any knowledge-based economy. Intellectual Property (IP) is the key to this process. Whatever the form of IP, know-how, (the knowledge people hold), copyright, design rights, patents or trademarks, successful commercial exploitation of science requires a managed process to identify, protect and exploit the intellectual ideas generated by research.
This event will bring together new developments in this field, and provide an opportunity to share experiences with key people from around the world.
The main topics will include:
Importance of IP to new high-tech businesses.
Identification and protection of IP in a research environment.
Government initiatives to encourage the development and exploitation of IP.
Technology transfer structures and their role in capturing high value IP.

This seminar is aimed at senior decision-makers in government, public and private laboratories, and the finance community, venture capitalists, academic and entrepreneurial researchers. The seminar will aim to provide an introduction to IP best practice in research and its place in the commercial exploitation of science.
