There are still many people that would consider intellectual property an impediment to openness, especially within a university setting. While this may be true in some circumstances, it is increasingly becoming clear that intellectual property is a critical tool to govern open innovation, in particular, the utilization of academic research. This seminar will discuss and provide examples of how intellectual asset management can play a critical role in developing innovation in universities by facilitating both research collaborations and the utilization of research results. The goal of the seminar will be to show how university innovation system actors as well as researchers can create greater value in their R&D activities through intellectual asset management.

The participants will learn to:

  • Understand the importance of utilization of Academic research in general and for the individual researcher
  • Identify, capture, and assess intellectual assets in research projects
  • Understand the various ways to utilize research and consequences of different choices
  • Understand the fundamental aspects of IPRs and licensing in relation to the utilization of academic research
  • Understand and practice fundamental Intellectual Property Management (IPM) tools for research collaborations, including managing ownership, access, and use of research results
