TITLE Understanding Intellectual Property

 
LEVEL D - Doctoral Workshops/Symposium

 
ECTS CREDITS Not Applicable

 
DEPARTMENT Doctoral School

 
DESCRIPTION
Intellectual Property (IP) is a term frequently bandied about without much understanding of its meaning and implications. The concept of IP is crucial to the existence of universities and their academic programmes, yet even here the awareness and understanding is often lacking. The aim of this workshop is to give the doctoral researcher an understanding of IP, explain the legal basis around IP Rights (IPR) and discuss practical applications of IP and IPR within and outside universities.

Outcomes:

By the end of this workshop, doctoral researchers should be able to:

- understand the meaning of intellectual property;
- understand the value of intellectual property;
- appreciate intellectual property rights and their legal basis;
- understand IP and IPR in practical situations (plagiarism, journal submission agreements and the copyright obligations and implications therein, studies involving data owned by a third party, confidentiality embargo, publication vs. protection of IP, publications and IP in collaboration and contract research projects).

 
ADDITIONAL NOTES This workshop is split into two parts – Part 1 and Part 2. Attendance is required in both parts.
