The basics of IP

Monday June 22nd, 14:00 - 15:30


This lecture will introduce you to the world of Intellectual Property Rights from the viewpoint of an academic research center. What are Intellectual Property Rights, why are they there, how can you obtain them, why should you care and how can they be used. In addition, the commercialisation of research results and other tasks of a technology transfer office – as present in most public research organisations these days – will be introduced.
