Univ Adv - Communications
October 25, 2012
Graduate students in Neuroscience, Biology, Biochemistry and Chemistry are invited to this event. Rumi is also welcome to attend, but the focus of this event is patent.
The format for the workshop consists of a 30-minute seminar followed by a 50-minute case study.
Refreshments and snacks will be served.
Topics to be discussed include an introduction of the various forms of IP, the basics of patent (why, when, who and how to file patents) and case study.
With the case study, students will learn how their research activities are relevant to IP. Topics to be covered include: the value of information found in IP databases; defining and protecting a new discovery; the criteria for patentability; ethical issues in patenting and commercialization; the impact of public disclosure; and IP ownership in a university research environment.
