Intellectual property and commercialisation
The intellectual capital within the research project needs to be carefully preserved and managed. This module provides an overview of how intellectual property is defined and managed at The University of Sydney and explores the potential for commercialisation of research outcomes. A useful module for all researchers – but particularly important for those working in areas where the research outcomes have high commercial potential.
This module is designed to provide university researchers with an introduction to commercialisation. An emphasis has been placed on ensuring the researcher gains a broad understanding and appreciation of the processes involved in identifying, protecting and packaging innovations for the marketplace. Such an understanding should provide a critical base for researchers wishing to participate in and appreciate the complex commercialisation process.
After completing this module you should be able to:
- Define and differentiate the types of intellectual property
- Describe the nature of intellectual property management
- Outline the way to structure a research project to generate IP
- Summarise the ways to protect intellectual property on a daily basis
- Appreciate the issues relating to intellectual property ownership for employees and students
- Comprehend the broad commercialisation process
The module comprises the following topics:
1. Intellectual property (IP) in a university context
3. IP and commercialisation dictionary
