Demystifying intellectual property

DATE: To be confirmed

Genomics and biodata business ideas, and especially those emanating from research institutes, have intellectual property (IP) and issues surrounding the ownership of that IP embedded within them, so here we:

  • Introduce the different types of intellectual property within genomics and biodata
  • Investigate who owns the IP you are developing as a researcher – what rights do you have?
  • Debate what to do when you have an idea – patent or publish?
  • Discuss strategies to create value from genomics and biodata IP
  • Explore the issues of protecting IP within software and when working with open science and public data
  • Utilise tools and frameworks to help you understand your IP position right from the start.
