Intellectual Property can be a valuable asset and understanding how to protect it will help you in your research career. Learn why you should use it, how you should use it, when you should use it, who owns it and how to commercialise IP. This session will touch upon UQ’s IP policies, and the broader Australian and global context.

Presented by and the special thanks to Jane Malloch and Michael Angliss of Uniquest.

About Entrepreneurship

We are now entering a new era where there is demand for commercial returns of publicly funded research: research that is transformational, innovative and solution-focused. It is important for any researcher to understand the possibilities and processes that connect research outcomes to the generation of commercial intellectual property and the varied strategies for turning this commercial IP into new products, processes and services. The Graduate School works actively in the entrepreneurship space with UQ Ventures and UQ's commercialisation arm, Uniquest
