IP for Research Workshop




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.

Each interactive one-day workshop will be tailored to the institution and delivered by an expert with contributions from local staff and relevant services, such as technology transfer offices. More details:
