Vitae and the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) are delighted to be partnering on the development of  ‘IP for Research’ workshops. These workshops aim to increase the Intellectual Property (IP) knowledge and skills of doctoral and early career researchers and facilitate relationships within institutions to support the management and development of IP.

“The IPO is delighted to be working with Vitae to deliver the IP for Research workshops.  Knowledge exchange, commercialisation and collaboration present different pathways to realise impact, and they also present different challenges.  The IPO is committed to supporting institutions to make informed decisions about using their IP and to helping researchers to be confident about how IP relates to their research.  These workshops explain how to navigate the IP environment, highlight the potential opportunities to maximise the impact of  research.”  Pippa Hall, Director of Innovation and Chief Economist, IPO
